Kasey Palmer has agreed to re-sign for Huddersfield Town on a season-long loan after putting pen to paper on a new deal at Chelsea, sources have told TEAMtalk.
The England Under-21 midfielder was one of Huddersfield’s stand-out performers as the Terriers capped a dream season by winning promotion to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.
Huddersfield had made the signing of several of their loan stars their top priority once promotion was secured, and while Town were keen on a permanent deal, our sources have told us that Chelsea have granted Palmer permission to make another season-loan loan move to Yorkshire.
Palmer made 26 appearances, scoring five times in all competitions for Huddersfield during his time at the John Smith’s Stadium and the Blues are happy to let him continue his development in West Yorkshire for another season.
But Chelsea rate Palmer highly and are understood to have rewarded the Lewisham-born midfielder, 20, with a new deal in a bid to protect their interest in the player.
The news is expected to be confirmed by both clubs in the coming days.
