Siewert mulling over squad decisions

18th April 2019, 14:52 by James Mason

Huddersfield Town boss Jan Siewert has revealed he is still deliberating what to do with his squad ahead of life in the Championship.

Siewert, who replaced David Wagner in January, was unable to stop the club from Premier League relegation and the Terriers will be plying their trade in England's second tier next season.

The 36-year-old manager is expected to let several players leave during the summer transfer window, with Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy believed to be a target for several top-flight teams.

Next up for the Terriers is a home clash against Watford and, speaking ahead of the match, Siewert revealed he is still looking at all his options before deciding what to do in the transfer market.

"We are still learning. I have a long-term view. I am still learning about these players and I have to in the last four games. I hate losing. It hurts me losing so many games," he said at a press conference.

"I can't waste time. I have to learn about these players. We have to look at all the details in the summer. We have to look at our squad, players, playing style of the Championship. It's all about next season.

"We can't know what the team will look like next season. We will have to go through this process. This is why we need this long-term view."
