European transfer interest emerges in Huddersfield Town defender



Huddersfield Town defender Christopher Schindler is the subject of transfer interest from German second-tier side Nurnberg, a report from Bild has claimed.

Schindler hasn’t played for Huddersfield since December due to injury, and is out of contract with the Terriers at the end of this season.

Now it seems as though he could be on the move again in the summer, amid this news of interest in his services.

According to this latest report, Nurnberg are keen on a move for Schindler come the end of the season, and the German club’s manager and sporting director are already said to have held talks with the defender about a move.

It is thought that Schindler would be interested in a move back to his native Germany, despite the fact that a move to Nurnberg would apparently see him take a sizeable pay cut.

Have these 24 former Huddersfield Town players retired or not?

Since joining Huddersfield from 1860 Munich back in the summer of 2016, Schindler has made 184 appearances in all competitions for the Terriers, helping them win promotion to the Premier League in 2017, and twice being named the club’s player of the season.

The Verdict

In a way, it would certainly be sad to see Schindler leave Huddersfield in such circumstances.

Having done so much for the club, for him to then leave after a season of limited game time due to injuries, and without fans there to bid him farewell, would be something of a shame.

However, Schindler is currently at a point where he can be particularly picky about his options, given his injury history, and the fact he is approaching the latter stages of his career.

As a result, this is a move that could make sense for him, allowing him to move back home and potentially give him the opportunity of more regular playing time.
