Wagner giving little away on Terriers' dealings

4th January 2019, 14:51 by Chris Rivers

Huddersfield boss David Wagner says Jason Puncheon's move should go through soon but is tight-lipped on more January signings.

The Terriers are understood to be putting the finishing touches to a loan agreement for Palace winger Puncheon, with Eagles boss Roy Hodgson echoing Wagner's comments by saying he expects a deal to go through shortly.

The 32-year-old midfielder will bolster Huddersfield's attacking options after a poor return in front of goal through the first 20 league games of the season, and Wagner says he's delighted to have added an experienced player to his ranks.

When asked when he expected Puncheon to sign for Huddersfield, the German coach replied: "We are close. I am pretty confident we will get this done in the next 24 to 48 hours."

Given Huddersfield are bottom of the table after a run of eight straight defeats, it is expected the West Yorkshire club will be very active in this month's transfer window.

Liverpool forward Dominic Solanke has been linked with a loan switch to the John Smith's Stadium although Wagner was giving little away on potential targets at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

When asked about the links to Solanke, Wagner said: "I have spoken with Jurgen (Klopp) very often. I like to cut this down. I won’t discuss any further players names or targets. They are under contract to other clubs.

"I have no idea if we can bring more players in or not. In general I think we have to look at all positions."
