Webb delighted with Edmonds-Green Huddersfield extension

11th September 2019, 15:35 by James Mason

Head of football operations David Webb says securing Rarmani Edmonds-Green to a long-term deal is great business for Huddersfield Town.

English defender Edmonds-Green has been working his way through Huddersfield’s youth ranks over the past couple of seasons and he is a former captain of the Under-18s side.

The 20-year-old featured throughout Town’s pre-season preparations, catching the eye at centre-back, and he made his senior debut in the EFL Cup clash with Lincoln City last month.

Impressed with what they have seen, the Championship outfit, who recently appointed Danny Cowley as manager, have rewarded the defender with a new deal that runs until the summer of 2022, with the club holding the option to trigger an extra year on the contract.

Speaking about the extension, Webb said: “We’re really happy that we’ve secured the long-term future of Rarmani to the football club. Everyone has seen the improvement in Rarmani over the last 12 months and, although he still has a lot to learn, he’s a very promising defender that is now a part of our First Team squad.

“It’s important that we secure the future of our talented players and, having taken the option year on his previous contract in the summer, it was great to agree this new contract at the start of the week.”
