Exclusive: Huddersfield Town player’s 2021 exit on the cards



Huddersfield Town will part company with Alex Pritchard at some point in 2021 with Rolando Aarons’ arrival in West Yorkshire heightening the chance of that happening in January, Football League World understands.

Pritchard has been on the books at the John Smith’s Stadium since January 2018, when he signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Terriers.

The 27-year-old has made 73 league appearances for Huddersfield, featuring for them in both the Premier League and Championship.

This season under Carlos Corberan, Pritchard’s game time has been limited.

In total, he’s managed only 534 minutes of league football, with the likes of Lewis O’Brien, Juninho Bacuna and Carel Eiting favoured by Corberan in the Town midfield.

Football League World understands that a move away from Huddersfield is inevitable in 2021, whether that is this month in the January transfer window or in the summer when Pritchard’s contract is due to expire.

A January move has become more of a possibility after Huddersfield’s capture of Aarons from Newcastle United, with the versatile winger bolstering Corberan’s options going forward, despite a host of injuries.

Further sources have told Football League World that Derby County were interested in offering Duane Holmes as part of deal to take Pritchard to Pride Park.

However, whether that materialises is another question, despite the fact that various reports, including one from The Athletic journalist Ryan Conway, suggest that Holmes is heading back to Huddersfield.

Holmes began his career with Huddersfield and has since had permanent spells with Scunthorpe and Derby.
