Huddersfield Town

Terriers hold interest in Dortmund defender

6th March 2019, 14:23 by Tom McGarry

Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert is reportedly interested in signing defender Herbert Bockhorn from former club Borussia Dortmund II.

Siewert is already planning for next season, with the Terriers looking almost certain to be relegated from the Premier League.

The German market is one the 36-year-old knows well, as he spent his entire career in his homeland prior to succeeding David Wagner as Huddersfield manager in January.

Indeed, Siewert was in charge of Dortmund II for 18 months before arriving at the John Smith's Stadium and is now looking to return to his former club to sign Bockhorn.

Right-back Bockhorn, who can also operate on the wing, has impressed in the German third tier this season, scoring twice in 18 appearances to date and his performances have also earned him a first call-up to the Ugandan national team, and he could feature for them at this summer's Africa Cup of Nations.

The 24-year-old is under contract with Dortmund II until the summer of 2021 but his agent has previously suggested he would not be averse to a summer switch.
