Huddersfield Town midfielder Dean Whitehead has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2017/18 Premier League season.
The former Sunderland, Stoke City and Middlesbrough man has made 56 appearances for Huddersfield since arriving in the summer of 2015, featuring 20 times during the 2016/17 Championship campaign. Though Whitehead won't likely play as much as he did last season, manager David Wagner said the midfielder will still be a very important part of the squad. "We shared our thoughts on what we both expect from the upcoming season and agreed that even if he plays less for us, he is still a very important part of the team and our dressing room," Wagner said. The 35-year-old has made 230 appearances in the Premier League, with the club’s second-most top-flight experienced player, Tom Ince, having made just 15 appearances. Wagner added: "I am very happy that he [Whitehead] will be at this club for a further season; he is a true professional and a really good character." Thu, Jul 6, 2017 03:37:00 PM
