Huddersfield Town have already announced the capture of two defenders from David Wagner's native Germany this summer, but they have now been linked with a third.

Christopher Schindler is a reported target for the club, and should QPR return with a revised bid for Joel Lynch that meets Town's valuation, then another centre back would be an essential purchase before the season kicks off.

Is Schindler the ideal recruit?

Here's everything you need to know...

How did he get started?

Schindler is one club man - to date, at least.

He's been at 1860 Munich since he was a kid, coming through the youth system and then playing for the club's second team before graduating to the senior side in 2010.

Born in Munich, the centre back has since made more than 150 appearances for his boyhood club, as well as picking up four caps for Germany at u21 level.

How did he fare in 2015/16?

Schindler wore the captain's armband for 1860 Munich throughout last season, turning out 33 times in the league and a further three in the cup.

He grabbed one goal and one assist during the campaign - interestingly, both came in the same game against SV Sandhausen.

However, he picked up a mere four yellow cards in all competitions, which should bode well for his ability to avoid suspension for the dreaded "totting up" procedure in England.

What about his contract situation?

Schindler signed a new contract last year which runs until 2019 - so a fee would be required to secure his signature.

Still to come into his prime at 26, Schindler has been the rock at the back for the 1860 defence.

Despite the last few campaigns not going to plan - and the constantly changing managerial situation - the captain has been there throughout.

He has missed just six games in the past two seasons, proving he is a reliable figure managers look towards.

In keeping with that theme and David Wagner's wishes to sign experienced German players who are yet to hit their peak years, that is exactly the billing that Schindler fulfils.

He would also sit well beside Michael Hefele, given the two are both German and don't have a language barrier to break down.

Schindler is strong in the air and in the tackle, something that will reassure both Wagner and the Town faithful that he can compete in a more physical league.

His leadership is one of his main attributes, and that motivational factor will be key with the ambitions Huddersfield harbour.

Schindler is also comfortable on the ball, but does not possess the threat in the air that Hefele has at the other end of the pitch.

Nevertheless, to lure away a club captain with three years left on his current contract would represent another impressive signing under the Wagner regime.
