Danny Grant signs for Huddersfield Town!

Who is he?

Huddersfield Town has announced the signing of Danny Grant, a 20-year-old Irishman from Bohemians for an undisclosed fee - believed to be around £100,000. Danny can play anywhere across the front three, but he has been used mostly as a left and right-winger. Grant played 17 league games in 2020, scoring on 7 occasions, including one hat-trick against Shelbourne. Grant has made 3 substitute appearances for the Republic of Ireland U21s. He won the PFAI Young Player of the Year award in 2020 as a result of his excellent season.

What type of player is he?

Danny made all but two of his appearances during 2020 as a Left Winger having previously played his career down the right. He is right-footed and is most like Josh Koroma in the current Huddersfield Squad, but being similar to Josh Koroma also makes him similar to former Town star Karlan Grant. You can expect Grant to hug to the left touchline before cutting inside on to his favoured right foot.

When do we expect to see Danny?

Danny is set to initially link up with the B team, but with the injury sustained by Josh Koroma, the introduction into the first-team picture may be sped up. He will only officially become a Town player on the 2nd of January and it would be thought that it would take him at least a month to acclimatise to English football. It is not clear if the Rolando Aarons deal is still going to go through, but if it does, you would think that Grant would be loaned out to a League One side for the rest of the season to gain experience.
