Huddersfield have strengthened their squad with the signing of right-back Florent Hadergjonaj from Ingolstadt.

The 23-year-old Switzerland international signs on a season-long loan from the Bundesliga 2 side, although the Premier League newcomers have the option to buy him at the end of the season.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner told his club’s official website: “It was important in this window that we found a real competitor for the right-back position and in Florent we have exactly the right player.”

Hadergjonaj started his career with Young Boys before joining Ingolstadt, who were in Germany’s top flight last season. He won his first senior cap in a friendly against Belarus in June.

Wagner continued: “Florent is one of the most exciting young right-backs in Germany and is a footballer who I believe will fit our system and style of play very well.

“He is a real Terrier in defence and likes to attack whenever possible, which is perfect for how we want to play.

“I have met with him and he is a good character; he is eager to show he can play in the Premier League despite a lot of interest from some top clubs in Germany. I’m looking forward to working with him on the training pitch.”
