Elias Kachunga can't wait to work with David Wagner.

And the German striker, who has signed a year-long loan deal with Huddersfield Town from FC Ingolstadt, believes the footballing identity on show at the John Smith's Stadium is perfect for him.

Kachunga, 24, struggled to settle at Ingolstadt but believes Wagner can help him rediscover the form he showed at Paderborn that persuaded his parent club to pay a record fee for his services.

"I know [Wagner] from Borussia Dortmund," said the forward. "We had a good conversation and he had a lot of good things to say about this club.

"He is a German coach and it is a good place for me to start in the Championship.

"His teams are very active and play very aggressively and I like that.

"I hope I can get a lot of minutes and can show what I can do.

"I am fast, I am a striker, not the biggest but I run a lot and like to score a lot of goals."

Currently in Sweden with his new teammates for the first part of a demanding pre season, Kachunga is eager to get going.

Town come up against his parent club next month, one of two friendlies scheduled as part of the training camp in Austria.

But Kachunga is focused on the Championship campaign, which kicks off against Brentford on August 6.

He added:"I'm very happy to be here at Huddersfield and now we can go to work.

"For me it is a big step in my life. I have come to a new country, a new club, a new league and I hope I can help the team to have a good season.

"I am excited to see my new teammates and I hope we can play a good season and make the fans proud."
