David Wagner won't talk about Huddersfield Town contract but is excited by his squad

The head coach is planning the next step in the club's development

David Wagner says he is happy to be working with an “exciting” Huddersfield Town squad as he plots the next stage of the club’s development.

The head coach, subject of speculation over potential interest from Celtic, is on a 12-month rolling contract at Town, who appointed him in November.

The 44-year-old German has made his mark, securing Championship status for next season, and is seeking an 11th win at the helm at home to Birmingham City.

Asked about his personal situation, the former Borussia Dortmund 2 boss responded: “On this subject I will always say no comment.

“It is what I have done in the past and it is what I will do now and in the future.

“I am irrelevant. The club is the important thing and I am just a part of the club.

“I am happy to be a part of the club.

“We have a very strong squad, an interesting squad, a young squad and an exciting squad.”

Wagner has already confirmed two close-season signings from German football in defenders Chris Loewe and Michael Hefele.

But he distanced Town from VfL Bochum striker Simon Terodde.

“I know him, but then every manager in the Championship and probably most in the Premier League know him,” he said.

“He was the top scorer in 2 Bundesliga last season and is the top scorer now.

“We have to be realistic about what kind of player we are speaking of.”

Wagner also said it is too early to talk about the futures of loan players Jed Steer, the Aston Villa keeper, Emyr Huws (Wigan Athletic) and Jamie Paterson (Nottingham Forest).

“They have done a good job and they have the advantage of knowing our club and our idea,” explained Wagner.

“But they belong to other clubs, and at those clubs, there are unknowns, so it is difficult to say anything at the moment.”
