“It’s more important to retain the Jonathan Hoggs of this world than it is to bring superstars in”
Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle has outlined his plans for the summer and said there will be no ‘superstars’ coming to the John Smith’s Stadium any time soon.
“For me it’s more important to retain our identity and retain the Jonathan Hoggs of this world than it is to bring superstars in,” he said. “It’s about getting a nice balance and we’ll do that going forward.”

“We’d like to put on record our thanks to Carlos for his enthusiasm, hard work and commitment since arriving at the club in December.

Huddersfield Town youngster shines for England at U17 Euros
Huddersfield Town youngster Matty Daly played a starring roll for England at the U17 Euros.
The Three Lions’ campaign, of which Daly played every game, came to an end last night when they lost to the Netherlands in the semi-final.
The goalless game went to penalties and England lost 6-5 but 17-year-old Daly scored England’s second spot kick.
He also scored the winner in England’s opening group game against Israel on May 4.
Gareth Southgate was watching on from the stands and will no doubt have been impressed with Daly’s performance in a deep-lying midfield roll.
The versatile youngster also played left-midfield and number ten for his country at last week’s tournament.
Chelsea target Manchester United and Arsenal players

The Sun report that Welsh international Ramsey is also on that list as speculation over his Gunners future continues to grow.
Town release six players
Huddersfield Town have confirmed their retained list for the the 2018/19 season. Six players, including Rob Green, have been released and Dean Whitehead’s retirement has been confirmed.
