Championship – Huddersfield Town v Blackburn Rovers

The town of Huddersfield has confirmed promising defender Rarmani Edmonds-Green has signed a new contract with the club following speculation over his future with the Terriers.

The 23-year-old has been at the Yorkshire club since he was 17, having played for Nike Academy before moving up north.

And six years to the day after signing on the dotted line for the first time, he has extended his stay at John Smith’s Stadium until 2024, with his previous contract due to expire this summer – although Huddersfield had a one-year extension. year in their favor.

Edmonds-Green has played 26 league games for Huddersfield, including 24 last season under Carlos Corberan in the Championship.

With the additions of Matty Pearson, Tom Lees and Levi Colwill this summer, Edmonds-Green was loaned out to League One side Rotherham and he thrived under Paul Warne, playing 20 times as the Millers sit third.

Having drawn the attention of Barnsley, Cardiff City and Preston North End ahead of the January transfer window, Edmonds-Green has now committed his future to Huddersfield and he is set to be part of Corberan’s squad for the 2022-23 season.

The verdict

This is good news for Huddersfield who would not have wanted to lose Edmonds-Green.

They weren’t in danger of doing so this summer anyway with the optional extension in their favor, but they now have even more security over the defender’s future.

It made sense to send Edmonds-Green out on loan this season – at times he didn’t really convince last season, especially when Huddersfield struggled in the second half of the season.

His performances for Rotherham have been very solid, however, and when Levi Colwill returns to Chelsea this summer, Edmonds-Green should be ready to step into his shoes.
