Huddersfield Town have reached a fresh agreement with Lewis O’Brien, with the midfielder signing a new three-year contract with the club.
O’Brien’s current deal at the John Smith’s Stadium was entering its final months and, although the club had the option to extend that by a further year, they’ve targeted the long-term.
It’s now been confirmed by the club that the 22-year-old has signed a new three-year deal, which sees him through until the summer of 2025.
24 questions about some of Huddersfield Town’s best ever strikers – Can you get 100% correct?
Carlos Corberan has elevated O’Brien’s game in the last year with a high-tempo brand of football suited to the midfielder. He scored three goals and registered three assists last season, standing out in a difficult campaign.
Already, O’Brien has a goal and an assist to his name in the 2021/22 campaign, contributing to a positive start to the season for the Terriers.
That comes after a summer of speculation where Leeds United were hot on the heels of the midfielder, looking to strike a transfer agreement. Phil Hodgkinson recently revealed that Town knocked back a £13m package for O’Brien from the Premier League side.
As you might expect, then, the Huddersfield fans are delighted with this news:
