Huddersfield Announce Chelsea's Kasey Palmer on Another Season-Long Loan Deal

Wednesday July 19th, 2017

​Huddersfield Town have confirmed Chelsea's Kasey Palmer is set to return to the club on a season-long loan deal, as David Wagner continues to bolster his squad ahead of the club's first season in the Premier League. 

The club have confirmed on ​their website that the 20-year-old attacking midfielder - who quickly became a fan favourite at the John Smith Stadium - is set to join the club until 30 June 2018.

The 20-year-old made an instant impression for the Yorkshire side after scoring with his second touch for the club on the opening day win against Brentford, where he went on to make 26 appearances for the club - scoring five goals and providing three assists. 

Palmer's season seemed to have come to a crushing end when he suffered a hamstring injury in the home win against Leeds United in February, however the 20-year-old went on to make a surprising return to the squad for Huddersfield's play-off final where he featured for 22 minutes as a substitute as the club won promotion to England's top flight.

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented on the re-signing of Palmer: “I’m very happy to have Kasey back at the Club. As we know from last season, he’s a very talented English player with high potential.

“Just as importantly, he is a fantastic personality too. He has real desire and hunger to be as good as he can be, but he’s also very humble. This is the best and most exciting mix that a player can have as he strives to become an excellent Premier League player.

“I know he feels he has unfinished business after his injury last season and I think that determination will be a big plus for him and the team this season.”
