Huddersfield sign Hogg from Watford

Huddersfield sign Hogg from Watford

JONATHAN HOGG has joined Championship side Huddersfield Town from divisional rivals Watford for an undisclosed fee.

The 24 year old box-to-box midfielder has signed a three year contract after completing the formalities earlier today.

Huddersfield have the option of a fourth year as part of the contract for a player who has Premier League experience with Aston Villa and was part of the Watford side who were beaten in last seasons Championship Play-Off Final.

Town boss Mark Robins told the club website:

'Jonathan's arrival is an important one and we're delighted we've been able to bring him in.

'Jonathan is a northern lad and when we learned he was looking to move nearer home, we acted very quickly to secure his signature. I know Watford were very reluctant to see him leave after he was so key to them last year.

'He is a different kind of midfield player to the ones we have at the club. We have a lot of talented ball players here, but Jonathan has an abundance of energy and can do everything you want from an all-round midfield player.'


Hogg's career started with Middlesbrough, his hometown team, before moving to Aston Villa at youth team level. Hogg made 6 appearances for Villa as well as loan spells with Darlington & Portsmoyth before joining Watford in 2011 for 400k and made a total of 78 appearances for the Hornets with 41 of those coming last season as they failed to escape the Championship via the play-offs.
