Huddersfield Town have recently confirmed the signing of Leicester City midfielder Andy King on loan until the end of the 2019/20 season.
King had previously spent the first half of this year’s campaign on loan with Scottish giants Rangers, but failed to make a notable impact with Steven Gerrard’s side.
The Welshman made just five appearances in total, and will be hoping he can make up for lost time with Danny Cowley’s men in the Championship this term.
Speaking in a pre-match press conference ahead of Huddersfield’s game against Brentford on Saturday, defender Danny Simpson labelled his former Leicester City team-mate as ‘a top professional’.
“I spoke to Kingy before he came. Now it’s all sorted out it’s great to see him. I’ve been helping him around.
“He’s a top professional, good to have around and I know what he can do on the pitch too.”
It’s set to be a potentially tricky test for Danny Cowley’s side, as they come up against a Brentford side that are one of the form sides in the Championship at the moment.
Thomas Frank’s men are currently sat third in the second tier standings, and could move to within three points of second-placed Leeds United if results go their way on Saturday.
But Huddersfield will be hoping that they can pull of an unlikely win at the weekend, as as they look to pull clear of the relegation zone.

I think Huddersfield could have made a shrewd signing in King if he adjusts well to his surroundings.
King has experience of playing both in the Championship and in the Premier League, but for one reason or another, simply hasn’t hit the heights originally expected of him in recent seasons.
Simpson will be key to helping King settle in at Huddersfield, and I don’t think Terriers supporters should be too worried about potential relegation if King can hit the ground running with Danny Cowley’s men.
