Huddersfield Town has won all English major trophies in the past. Soon after their foundation in 1908, they were crowned English Champions a total of 3 times, won the FA Cup once, and managed to win an English Supercup title. Ever since, the Terriers have been struggling to regain their prime form from the beginning of the 20th century.
To put it into perspective, the start of the 21st century saw the Terriers in the third tier of the English football system. They spent nearly ten years in League One before being able to win promotion to the Championship. It took them five more years before coach David Wagner made Huddersfield return to the Premier League a fact.
Huddersfield Town Transfers
Conor Coady from Liverpool for £470,000 in 2014 – Coady is a product of Liverpool's youth academy but only managed a single appearance for the senior squad. He spent a season-long loan with Sheffield United in 2013-2014 while the team participated in League One, the third tier of English football. This was when he was spotted by Huddersfield town, who bought him for £470,000. In his first and only season for the Terriers, Coady made a total of 48 appearances before being purchased by fellow Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers. He went on to become a prominent player for the Wolves and even became the team captain under new coach Nuno Espirito Santo. Huddersfield sold Conor Coady to Wolverhampton for £2.8 Million.
Adama Diakhaby from Monaco for £10 Million in 2018 – After a rather unsatisfactory 2017/2018 season in the Premier League, Huddersfield tried to strengthen their line up in order to survive relegation. Adama Diakhaby was rumoured and then bought from Monaco for the price of £10 Million. Diakhaby only had 12 appearances during the 2018/2019 campaign, which resulted in Huddersfield getting relegated. The winger failed to establish himself as a regular starter even in the Championship since he only made 18 starts in 2019-2020.
Terence Kongolo from Monaco for £20 Million in 2018 – Similarly to Diakhaby, Kongolo was attracted in the summer of 2018 from Monaco in an effort to bolster the club's lineup. For the price of £20 Million, Terence Kongolo became the most expensive player that Huddersfield has ever bought. Unfortunately, his efforts as a defender weren't enough, and the team got demoted, with Kongolo continuing his career on loan with Fulham. Later he finished a permanent move to the London club for £4.4 Million, putting the majority of the £20 Million spent for him to waste.
Karlan Grant from Charlton Athletic for £1.7 Million in 2019 – Being brought up by Charlton, Athletic Grant struggled to secure a regular spot in his team up to 2018 when he scored 14 goals in 28 league appearances. This led to the recently relegated side Huddersfield Town buying the youngster. He spent the following season of 2019-2020 with the Terriers in the Championship, scoring 19 goals in 43 matches. At the age of 23, during autumn of 2020, he was sold to West Bromwich Albion for £16.5 Million – a club-record fee.
