Carlos Corberan is continuing to ease Alex Vallejo in at Huddersfield Town, as the Spaniard awaits to make his debut for the club.
Vallejo joined Huddersfield Town from Fuenlabrada last month, with the 28-year-old leaving the Spanish outfit at the end of last season upon the expiry of his contract.
The midfielder had to isolate upon his arrival at the John Smith’s Stadium, delaying his start to life at the club.

Vallejo – who hasn’t played a competitive game of football since December – is yet to make his debut for Huddersfield, but Corberan has now provided an update on the player’s situation at the club.
Speaking to the press ahead of tomorrow night’s trip to Wycombe Wanderers, Corberan said that Vallejo is working closely with the coaches and has been playing with the B team to get some minutes under his belt.
CC: "With Álex Vallejo we want to work on very specific points.
"We want to adapt him to the Championship demandings.
"We don't want to give him minutes until he's ready.
"He's working closely with the physical coaches and using the B Team to gain minutes."#htafc

Vallejo will be hoping to contribute to Corberan’s side as soon as possible after what has been a mixed start to the season for Town.
The Terriers have won four of their opening 12 games this season, and are winless in their last three matches.
This is sensible.
Vallejo hasn’t played a game of football since the Copa del Rey victory over Pena Sport in December, so he isn’t ready to be thrown straight into the deep end right away.
He needs easing in as the Championship is a very physically demanding division, and he will be hopeful of featuring sooner rather than later.
