HTAFC: Joey Gudjonsson departs Town

HTAFC: Joey Gudjonsson departs Town

JOEY GUDJONSSON has requested the mutual termination of his Huddersfield Town contract and manager Simon Grayson agrees.

The 31 year-old Icelandic international had been frozen out for the entire campaign under Lee Clark but had recently featured under new manager Simon Grayson.

Joey had lost his place (again) in the side in recent weeks and he has requested to leave by mutual consent after receiving an offer to go home and play in his native Iceland.

The move is motivated by family reasons, and after a near two year stay at Huddersfield Town this now draws to a close his spell with The Terriers.

Gudjonsson had a parting message for the Town fans, speaking to htafc.com he said:-

I have thoroughly enjoyed by time at the Club; the lads have been great, just like the staff and everyone connected with Huddersfield Town - they've all been great work alongside.

'I would have liked to have played more during my two seasons, but that is football and you have to respect those decisions and the people who make them. I've certainly enjoyed my time here though.

'I would also like to wish the fans all the best. I've always enjoyed playing in front of them as they've offered me great support and I hope they know that I've always given everything when I've been on the pitch. They deserve success at their Club. I have some fond memories especially the free kick that sealed a 1-0 win at Charlton last year as well pushed for promotion.'

'We have a great squad here and everyone, including the off-the-field staff, is pushing in the same direction. I believe this Club deserves to be in the Championship and it would be a brilliant achievement to get there through the Play-Offs this season - and I believe that with the quality that we have, we will.'


So we wave goodbye to Joey, he was out of contract in the summer and would have been going anyway.

It's a shame to lose him with only two league games remaining and a play-off campaign on the horizon, but we wish Joey all the best and good luck for the future.
