European top-flight club eyeing Huddersfield Town man as replacement for 31 y/o



Turkish side Fenerbahce are reportedly interested in a move for Huddersfield Town defender Florent Hadergjonaj and see him as a replacement for the departing Mauricio Isla. 

Hadergjonaj has spent the second half of the season on loan in the Turkish Super Lig with Kasimpasa as he went in search of first-team football after losing his place in the starting XI under Danny Cowley.

The Kosovan international is out of contract in 2021, which may mean the Terriers look to cash in on him this summer.

It appears Fenerbahce will be waiting to swoop if that is the case as, according to a report from Turkish outlet Takvim (via Sports Witness), they’re eyeing him up as a replacement for Isla.

The 31-year-old is set to become a free agent this summer and the Turkish club are keen to sign Hadergjonaj when he does.

Hadergonaj has made 73 appearances since joining Huddersfield from FC Ingolstadt in 2018 but his place looks uncertain under the current manager.

Cowley took charge of the Terriers in September and has brought full-backs Danny Simpson and Harry Toffolo to the club since his arrival.

Hadergjonaj had started every Championship game this term before the arrival of the Huddersfield boss but has started just eight league games of the next 21.

The Verdict

Hadergonaj’s Huddersfield future seems very uncertain, so this could be a move that makes a lot of sense for all parties involved.

The 25-year-old looked to have fallen down the pecking order with the Terriers and with just one year left on his contract, the Yorkshire club could look to cash in.

He now has experience in the Turkish Super Lig, so a move to Fenerbahce could make a lot of sense.

It will be interesting to see how this one develops.
