Aaron Mooy wants to continue to reach new heights with Premier League new boys Huddersfield Town,

After reportedly inking a three-year deal on Friday.

Aaron Mooy eager to continue achieving with Huddersfield TownAAP reports Mooy has transferred permanently to Town from parent club Manchester City for a club record fee of £8 million, having spent last season in the blue and white stripes.

Socceroo Mooy played a key role in Huddersfield’s charge towards promotion and netted a crucial spot kick in the play-off final victory against Reading.

He became a favourite of both manager David Wagner and the fans. Despite the lofty fee, Mooy is not Australia’s most expensive ever player, a title still belonging to Mark Bresciano who was bought by Serie A club Parma for AU$23 million.

“Playing for Huddersfield has been a fantastic experience this year and thanks to the fans, David, the owner Dean and all the team, I’ve grown to feel part of the Terriers family,” Mooy is quoted as saying by AAP. Now we’re in the Premier League, not only do I get to play at the highest level of football, but I continue to be part of a team that achieved something special and we will continue on that journey together to try and achieve much more. I’d like to thank my former club, Manchester City, for the support throughout my time in the Championship and during my transition to Huddersfield.”

It should be noted the move has not yet been confirmed by Huddersfield Town. The 26-year-old featured in a whopping 61 games throughout the 2016-17 season, spanning both Huddersfield and Socceroos matches extending into the Confederations Cup in Russia.

There, Australia garnered two points through draws with Chile and Cameroon, but it was not enough to progress to the semi-finals. Mooy’s first game as a full time Terrier is away against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on the opening day of the new Premier League season in August.

He will be joined in England’s top division by Mat Ryan, who signed a long-term deal with Brighton and Hove Albion.
