Elvis Manu has escaped from an “unhappy marriage” by moving to Huddersfield Town.

The Dutch forward has joined the John Smith’s Stadium club on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion for the rest of the season.

He’s got his sights set on regular Championship action after failing to make a league start for the Seagulls.

Brighton splashed out £1.5m on the former Dutch Under 21 international, who also qualifies for Ghana.

The 22-year-old played 33 times for Feyenoord last season, firing in 10 goals.

He also featured in this season’s 3-2 home win over Utrecht before signing for Brighton in August.

Since then, he has had to make do with nine appearances from the bench, and just one start, against Hull City in the FA Cup.

He says he made the “wrong choice” by heading to the Amex Stadium.

Manu, who will wear No28 for Town, added: “I once asked (manager Chris Hughton) why am I here?

“I always get the answer that I must be patient and must continue to train hard.

“Brighton and I do not have a happy marriage.”
