Mathias Jorgensen has arrived in Turkey ahead of a move to Fenerbahce, according to Turkish outlet Hurriyet.
The defender has long been involved in a transfer sage linking him to the Turkish giants, and it appears that the move is finally nearing completion.
Whilst Huddersfield may be in a rush to line up a replacement, Fenerbahce have the rest of the month to make the move, hence why the deal has been drawn-out over the summer.
The outlet reports that Jorgensen will sign a three-year deal but makes no note of the transfer fee, although The Terriers have previously rejected bids from Fenerbahce as the club failed to meet their £3.5m asking price.
Jan Siewart has been keen for Jorgensen to depart and the defender wasn’t part of pre-season plans after making just four appearances since the German’s arrival.
This deal has been a long time coming and it is good that Huddersfield will finally be able to move him on for the sake of the team and squad harmony.
It is still a strange decision however and one that will puzzle some Town fans, as Jorgensen had shown his quality and played a big role in Premier League survival, and had all the attributes to suggest he’d be an effective Championship defender.
It is positive that the club has refused to sell him below his asking price though as it shows they won’t be pushed over, and now they may be able to use the funds from his sale to strengthen the defence.
