      Club was relegated to League One this season...

      Michael Duff has been appointed the new manager of recently-relegated Huddersfield Town signing a contract until 2027.

      The former defender was last in charge of Swansea City but was dismissed by the Swans after amassing just six victories in 21 games.

      Now the 46-year-old is tasked with getting Huddersfield back into the Championship after relegation to League One this season.

      "Since leaving my last role, I’ve had time to reflect, recharge and focus on what the next challenge I wanted to take on would look like," Duff said about his appointment. 

      "Whatever was to come had to be right and be a good fit, and that is exactly what this feels like. I know that our supporters expect a certain level of commitment, desire, high energy and passion from their play, and those are the high standards I’ve kept for all of my sides...

      "...This is a special Club with a magnificent history and exciting future, so it’s a real honour to have the opportunity to be part of that. I can guarantee that I will give my all for Huddersfield Town – that’s what I’ll be asking of my players too – and together alongside our supporters we have a pre-season and campaign ahead that we’ll be ready to attack."

      Before his short stint at Swansea, Duff enjoyed successful spells at Barnsley – where he reached the 2022/23 League One play-off final – and Cheltenham Town where he guided them to their highest-ever Football League finish.
