Jonathan Hogg: Feels at home

The Middlesbrough-born defender, a regular for beaten play-off finalists Watford last season, became Huddersfield's seventh summer signing on Monday when he put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

"I wasn't really expecting to leave Watford, but it wasn't the perfect situation for me," Hogg told Huddersfield's official club website.

"Family-wise it wasn't ideal as my young family were living in Middlesbrough.

"In terms of the football it was really good and I felt like I would have progressed my career at Watford, so it was a very big decision that I had to make.

"My family have been great, but they are the reason why I chose to leave. I needed to look after them.

"I have two little girls and it was very tough when I had to leave them to head back down south.

"Huddersfield is the perfect fit for me and I'm looking forward to showing the fans what I am all about.

"I feel Huddersfield is an excellent place to develop my career and I'm excited by what is in store."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.
