Huddersfield Town have handed goalkeeper Joe Murphy a contract extension through to the end of next season, with a club option for a further year after that.

The former Republic of Ireland international has made nine appearances this term and 13 for the club in all.

Currently competing with on-loan Aston Villa stopper Jed Steer for the first-team berth, the 34-year-old was signed from Coventry City on a two-year deal the summer before last.

The Dubliner previously played for Tranmere Rovers, West Bromwich Albion, Sunderland and Scunthorpe United.

Town head coach David Wagner said: “The goalkeeping situation at the club is perfect, as we have two very good players.

“Joe is not only an excellent, experienced goalkeeper, but he is a great character as well.

“Before we extended his contract we spoke about my expectation for his important role on the pitch and in the dressing room.

“I am very happy that he will stay for next season.”
