Hello and welcome to our Huddersfield Town live blog for Wednesday, June 20.

Town's transfer window is well under way with the Terriers bringing in three signings already this summer.

Ben Hamer was the first through the door for Town, joining from Leicester City, before last season's AS Monaco loanee Terence Kongolo pledged his future to David Wagner's side.

Ramadan Sobhi was the third new recruit this summer after joining from Stoke City for £5.7m, but there will likely be more on the horizon for the Terriers.

Alongside the transfer window, the 2018 FIFA World Cup is well and truly under way, with England back in action against Panama on Sunday and Town trio Aaron Mooy, Mathias 'Zanka' Jorgensen and Jonas Lossl facing off on Thursday.

Stick with us here for all the latest news and rumours regarding Town, with the summer transfer window and World Cup fever now in full swing.

Juninho Bacuna: What you need to know

Leicester "right club for me" - Maddison

James Maddison believes Leicester was the “right club” for him.

I’m really happy to be here. I had a good chat with the manager about football and how he wants me to play, how he likes to play and I was sold.

We talked about the type of player I am, how I’m going to fit into his style of play and everything sounded really promising. I haven’t looked back since that phone call.

Leicester just seems like the right fit for me. I’ve got a good feel about the club and I can’t ignore that, in my head and my heart.

I felt like this was the right place for me to be, so I’m delighted and can’t wait to get started.

Town to sign Groningen midfielder?

Dutch outlet Het Dagblad van het Noorden is claiming that Huddersfield Town are in talks with 20-year-old midfielder Juninho Bacuna.

The Groningen youngster is said to be signing a three-year deal at the John Smith’s Stadium, with Town paying a small fee for his services.

The outlet also quotes Groningen director Hans Nijland, who reportedly confirmed the move to RTV Noord.

He said:

It has to come to paper first, but he has a one-year contract, so that has to be bought.

Personally, I would have liked to have extended it for another two years, but it is certainly a nice club and he has a desire to take that step. He is a child of the club, we should be proud of it. is also a compliment for the training of FC Groningen.
