Town Sign Forest Green Rovers Midfielder

Reece Brown

Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of 23-year-old midfielder Reece Brown from Forest Green Rovers.

The attack-minded central midfielder joins the Terriers on the back of a superb season with the Sky Bet League 2 side, where he contributed 11 goals and 15 assists as the Gloucestershire club reached the Play-Offs.

Brown, who is capped by England up to Under-20 level, is out of contract at Forest Green, but compensation is payable due to his age and an undisclosed fee has been agreed between the clubs.

He has put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract at Town starting on 1 July 2019 but will join Jan Siewert’s First Team squad for the start of pre-season. 

Huddersfield Town head coach Jan Siewert commented: “I’m very happy that we can welcome Reece to Huddersfield Town today.

“He is a very interesting player. He had a setback in his career when he left Birmingham City, but he showed great desire to go on and have a real impact at Forest Green Rovers. Now wants to show that he can apply his qualities to be a success in the Sky Bet Championship.”
