DANNY GRANT JOINS HUDDERSFIELD TOWN

Shelbourne v Bohemians - SSE Airtricity League Premier Division

Bohemians can confirm that winger Danny Grant has joined English Championship side Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee.

Grant, 20, joined the club in 2017 from Bangor Celtic and progressed through the Bohemians U19s into the first team.

He made his first-team debut away to Dundalk in March 2018 and has gone from strength to strength since, playing 74 times for the club in all competitions and chipping in with 16 goals.

Bohemians manager Keith Long said: “It’s a great opportunity for Danny and, importantly, it’s a good deal for the club.

“Danny has improved year on year since coming to the club, initially with our U19s and then with our first team.

“He’s reached another level this year, becoming an Ireland U21 international and winning the PFAI Young Player of the Year Award.

“He has earned this opportunity. It will be a step up for him but he has proven himself capable at every step he has made so far.

“He’s been given a 3½-year deal by Huddersfield which is a real commitment to him.

“That is a testament to his own ability and to how he has grasped the opportunity afforded to him at Bohemians.

“Obviously we are very disappointed that we are losing a player of his ability. It gives me a problem trying to replace a player of that quality, and hopefully we will have news on that when the time is appropriate.

“But all of the backroom team and players are very happy for him. Everyone at the club wishes him the world of luck with Huddersfield and for his future career.”
