Jamie Paterson believes the arrival of Rajiv van La Parra will help bring the best out of all Huddersfield Town’s forwards.

The winger has signed on loan from Championship rivals Wolves ahead of a permanent £750,000 summer switch.

As well as Paterson, he joins Harry Bunn, Joe Lolley, Elvis Manu, Karim Matmour and Sean Scannell among head coach David Wagner’s current options.

Van La Parra made his debut in Saturday’s sweet 4-1 win at Leeds United - only to be taken off at half-time.

Wagner was quick to defend the Dutchman, saying he will prove a key recruit.

And Nottingham Forest loanee Paterson agrees.

“Rajiv is a good player and I’ve seen a lot of him at Wolves,” he said.

“He’s a good addition to the squad and he’s a really good lad as well.

Paterson accepts the arrival of his fellow 24-year-old puts pressure on him to keep his place in the side.

He added: “Hopefully I’ll get a chance to play alongside him again soon.

“Rajiv’s a very quick and direct winger, we’ve got a few in the squad now and it’s good for the rotation policy.

“Everyone will be fresh that way and hopefully he can add something different.”

Following the win over Leeds, Paterson is looking forward to another derby after the international break.

Town, who are 16th, host play-off hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, April 2.

“It’s another big day for the fans but for us as players, we have to focus on the football,” he said.

“But it should be another great atmosphere and a game to relish.”
