European giants continue to monitor Huddersfield Town player ahead of January transfer window

Huddersfield Town have enjoyed a resurgence with life under Danny Cowley, and the Terriers are currently the form-side in the Championship as they prepare to travel to Preston North End on Saturday.

One man who has fallen out of favour under Cowley, is Kosovan right-back Florent Hadergjonaj, who has seemingly lost his place to Cowley’s only signing as Town boss, Danny Simpson.

Hadergjonaj had started the first ten matches of Town’s season, but since the signing of Simpson in September, has only managed 35 minutes in a Town shirt.

The 25-year old, originally joined Town on loan in January 2017 and made 24 appearances for the club whilst in the Premier League but now speculation has risen again that the right-back could be swapping West Yorkshire for Turkey.

Three weeks ago it was reported in the Turkish press (see image below) that Fenerbahce were interested in signing the right-back in the January window and these rumours have been rebuffed on Friday.

Turkish newspaper Aksam, reported on Friday that the Turkish giants were set to send scouts to watch the 25-year old in action for Kosovo in their upcoming European Championship qualifiers against the Czech Republic and England next month.

Hadergjonaj, features alongside Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi for his national side which has only added fuel to the speculation.

Fenerbahce’s only right-back Mauricio Isla is set to be out of contract this summer and it seems the Turkish clubs are taking steps in recruiting a replacement for the 31-year old.

The Verdict

The speculation certainly isn’t going away and with Fenerbahce reportedly set to send scouts to watch Hadergjonaj in action clearly shows the interest from the Turkish side is there.

Town however should be cautious to be quick to let Hadergjonaj go, Simpson is only contracted until the end of the season and the Kosovan has been a fan’s favourite since he arrived in West Yorkshire.

Playing time and money may end up tempting Hadergjonaj to head for Turkey, however and I wouldn’t be surprised this speculation to continue up to the January window.
