Huddersfield Town Sporting Director Mark Cartwright has admitted that he is delighted with the loan signing of CHELSEA talent ALex Matos

They have one of the best academies in world football – and there has been quite a few players that have come through the system at Stamford Bridge and broken into the first team.

However – there are also players like Matos, who have shown great potential in the youth system, that have been unable to break into the side and have instead been sent out on loan.

He said: “It’s rare that young players of Alex’s ability become available to loan, but thanks in part to the relationship we have built with Chelsea and our reputation in helping talented young players grow, it was clear to both parties that this would be a mutually beneficial move.

“There’s been no secret about Alex’s ability since his time with Norwich City, so it was no surprise to see a side of CHELSEA’s stature come in to sign him in the summer. It speaks volumes about his character and ability that, having only recently turned 19, he’s already placed himself within first team consideration.

“Alex brings us fresh energy and dynamism within our midfield options, whilst complementing the players we already have to call on. We think those relationships and partnerships will quickly flourish, and we look forward to watching on to see how he progresses over the next few months in blue and white.”

Huddersfield Town Manager Darren Moore added:

“With so many important games to come, improving our options in midfield early in the window was crucial as we’ve seen the impact that injuries can have on the way we want to play as a team.

“Alex has a fantastic pedigree, exciting career to date and huge hunger and desire to succeed right at the very highest level of the game – as his Manager, it’s that mentality and application that I find most exciting about him.

“A little bit different to all of our current options, I’m keen to get working with him straight away to see how his game can complement and enhance not only his teammates in midfield, but the side as a whole.”

Welcome to the Terriers, Alex!
