Huddersfield Town's new summer signing is reported to be German left back Chris Löwe , currently with 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Chairman Dean Hoyle has confirmed the signing of a player from a German club on a pre-contract agreement.

And although the club won't confirm the name of the new man, Löwe has worked with David Wagner before at Borussia Dortmund.

We asked German football expert Jonathan Walsh, a regular watched of the 2. Bundesliga, exactly what Town fans would be able to expect from the defender, should he arrive in Huddersfield in the summer...

"A left back who loves to attack and has a will to win" - Jonathan Walsh

"Chris Löwe could be the first German to arrive under David Wagner’s reign at the club and would look be a shrewd acquisition by the former Borussia Dortmund II boss. He would join up with former 1. FC Kaiserslautern team-mate Karim Matmour in Yorkshire, who Wagner snapped up in January.

"The 26-year-old has experience at all levels of German football and knows what it takes to help a side rise up the table. He was captain of The Red Devils until Konrad Fünfstuck gave the honour to Daniel Halfar, a controversial decision that has yet to pay off.

"With over 200 games under his belt, including 99 in the German second tier, Löwe is a motivator and would add some bite to the Town’s left flank. His never say die attitude and will to win are two major personality traits that would be likely to have a positive impact in Wagner’s dressing room.

"Löwe’s spell with Wagner at BVB was brief, making just 11 first-team appearances at the Westfalenstadion. He did, however, win the Bundesliga during his stint at the club and also feature six times under Wagner for their under-23 side.

"His strengths, at Chemnitzer FC, Dortmund and Kaiserslautern, are clear; Löwe loves to attack. The left-back, who can also be used as a more defensive left-midfielder, has 40 assists in a little over 200 appearances.

"It is an impressive record that could have been aided by more clinical finishing, though Nahki Wells should be excited at the possibility of linking up with him next term. His speed and crossing make overlaps down the left an area that Huddersfield could look to exploit next term.

"Fans need not fret about his defensive capabilities, however, as Löwe is more than happy to do his fair share at the back. In comparison to former Germany under-21 international Jean Zimmer, the FCK right-back, Löwe has won more and lost fewer tackles, and committed fewer fouls in a similar amount of game time.

"Given how highly-regarded Zimmer is, this shows the undervalued work of Löwe. The left-back does, however, lack slightly in height which could be a problem when dealing with crosses towards the back post. While he is keen to get forward, he can be little overzealous at times.

"Despite this, he has been Kaiserslautern’s best player on the pitch this season and that is part down to his tireless work up and down the wing.

"If this transfer does happen and sets the tone for Huddersfield’s summer signings and, perhaps, business in Germany, then they will be in for a very interesting season under Wagner."
