Chris Löwe says the David Wagner connection was the key to him joining Huddersfield Town.

The 27-year-old German worked under compatriot and Town head coach Wagner at Borussia Dortmund before a £400,000 move to Kaiserslautern three and a half years ago.

Now the free agent has signed a three-year deal at the Championship club.

And after a whistle-stop house-hunting trip, he smiled: “I am very excited about this move.

“David is a big reason for me wanting to come.

“I know him from our time at Dortmund and I know his style of football.

“I believe it will be good both for me and this club going forward.

“There are ambitions here and I want to help achieve them.”

Löwe, who will be joined by another German defender, Michael Hefele, at Town in June, said the challenge of moving countries is big but not daunting.

“There are differences as well as similarities between football in Germany and here,” he added.

“I came over to watch the match at Preston (in February) and I have spoken to my old (Kaiserslautern) teammate Philipp Hofmann, who plays for Brentford.

“At my age, this is probably the last opportunity for me to make a move like this.

“My family are totally behind me and we are all looking forward to getting going here.”
