Huddersfield Town defender Harry Toffolo has taken to Twitter to react to the news that Aiden O’Brien has decided to commit his future to the club.
As confirmed by the Terriers’ official website, the midfielder is now set to stay at the John Smith’s Stadium until 2025 after signing a contract extension.
O’Brien had been heavily linked with a move to Leeds United during the summer transfer window but Huddersfield opted to turn down the opportunity to cash in on him.
The 22-year-old has made an encouraging start to the 2021/22 campaign for the Terriers.
As well as providing two direct goal contributions for his side in the Championship, the midfielder is currently averaging a respectable WhoScored match rating of 6.82 at this level.

After witnessing his side suffer a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest last weekend, O’Brien will be determined to help the Terriers bounce back on Saturday in their clash with Swansea City.
Making reference to this key development at Huddersfield, Toffolo has revealed that he believes his team-mate deserved a new deal.
Thoroughly deserved, what a man! 🔵⚪️ https://t.co/W4U7Xwxv9V

It is hard to disagree with Toffolo’s stance regarding this particular deal as O’Brien has emerged as a key player for Huddersfield in recent years and thus the club’s supporters will be delighted to see him sign a new contract.
Although the 2021/22 campaign is still in its infancy, the Terriers have already managed to illustrate some real signs of promise in the Championship.
Providing that O’Brien is able to maintain his form as well as his consistency, he could potentially help his side reach new heights in the Championship.
Having already made 86 appearances at this level during his career, the midfielder knows exactly what it takes to thrive in this division and thus will fancy his chances of producing another eye-catching display on Saturday.
If Huddersfield do seal all three points in their clash with Swansea, they may be able to use the momentum gained from this result to push on under the guidance of head coach Carlos Corberan.
