Joe Allen from Stoke to Huddersfield Town: Is it a good potential move? Would he start? What does he offer?

on

Huddersfield Town have been credited with an interest in Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen, as per a report from The Sun. 

The Terriers, who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League, will be preparing themselves for another shot of securing a Premier League return once the new season comes around. 

The report does state that a move for Allen could prove to be too expensive for the Terriers, whilst it also outlines there is a lot of interest in the 32-year-old. 

Is it a good potential move? 

An experienced professional who has bags of ability, Allen would bring a lot to Huddersfield both on the pitch and in the dressing room. 

It remains to be seen what other clubs are interested, bar Swansea City, with both clubs looking like good potential destinations for the Wales international. 

Certainly possessing the necessary levels of ability to remain in the Championship, it is hard to argue against this being a good move for all involved. 

Literally 99% of Huddersfield Town supporters should be scoring 28/28 on this Terriers quiz – Can you?

When was the club formed?

Would he start? 

When considering Huddersfield’s midfield options as things stand, then it would appear that Allen may just miss out on regular minutes from the start. 

Lewis O’Brien is an immovable force in the middle of the midfield, whilst Jon Russell is progressing at an exciting rate.

Jonathan Hogg then acts as the enforcer, with his experience and know-how allowing the aforementioned duo to flourish just ahead of him. 

If Allen was to arrive, then he would likely be competing with Hogg. 

What does he offer? 

Not only would his experience prove vital both on the pitch and in the dressing room, his ability to read the game quicker than most would be a real asset for Carlos Corberan. 

A technically-gifted midfield operator, he is also someone who works well within a side who will press in the way that Huddersfield will. 

He will also immediately bolster the competition levels within the squad.
