Huddersfield Town have announced that Rarmani Edmonds-Green has signed a new deal with the club to extend his stay until the summer of 2022.
The Terriers are struggling in their first season back in the Championship, and currently occupy one of the relegation places after the opening six games.
That poor start to this year’s campaign saw Jan Siewert dismissed, with Danny Cowley being appointed as his successor, as he looks to steer them clear of their relegation fears.
Edmonds-Green made his debut for the club earlier this season, in a surprise defeat to Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup.
He’ll be keen to force his way into the first-team on a consistent basis in the near future, with his previous deal at The John Smith’s Stadium set to expire in the summer of 2020.
In an interview with the club’s official website, Huddersfield’s Head of Football Operations David Webb expressed his delight at Edmonds-Green’s contract extension.
“We’re really happy that we’ve secured the long-term future of Rarmani to the football club.
“Everyone has seen the improvement in Rarmani over the last 12 months and, although he still has a lot to learn, he’s a very promising defender that is now a part of our First Team squad.
“It’s important that we secure the future of our talented players and, having taken the option year on his previous contract in the summer, it was great to agree this new contract at the start of the week.”
Huddersfield are next in action when they take on Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, in what will be Danny Cowley’s first game in charge of the Terriers.
This is a smart bit of business.
I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen from the young defender so far, and I’m surprised that he hasn’t featured on a more regular basis, especially given that Huddersfield are struggling this season.
He’s clearly one to keep an eye on for the future, and he could be in the first-team regularly sooner rather than later.
