Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien is set to sign a new contract with the club, according to The Sun on Sunday (05/09, page 61).
O’Brien’s future was a huge talking point over the course of the summer, with the midfielder strongly linked with a move away from the John Smith’s Stadium.
Leeds United looked to be favourites to land O’Brien’s signature, with Huddersfield rejecting multiple bids from their West Yorkshire rivals.
But Huddersfield held onto their midfield talisman, who has been an integral player under Carlos Corberan since the Spaniard’s arrival at the club.
O’Brien, who has made 86 appearances for the Terriers, scored three goals and added three assists last season. This season, he’s made three appearances in the Championship and scored in the win over Reading last weekend.
Now, The Sun on Sunday report that O’Brien is set to sign a new deal at Huddersfield, with the midfielder happy to extend his contract.
O’Brien’s current deal at the John Smith’s Stadium expires at the end of this season, but the club do have a 12-month extension option in his contract.
This is undoubtedly a big boost for Carlos Corberan and Huddersfield.
O’Brien is such a big player for the club and is a key cog in the way Corberan likes his team to play. He adds plenty of energy and tenacity in midfield, as well as clear goal threat.
They did tremendously well to keep hold of him in the summer, and now they look set to get their just rewards.
