Huddersfield Town have announced the loan signing of Everton goalkeeper Jonas Lossl until the end of the season, sealing a return to the Terriers for the Dane.

The 31-year-old moved to Goodison Park on a free transfer from Huddersfield in the summer but has failed to make any appearances for the Blues so far.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Lossl said he had no doubts about making the move back across the Pennines when the opportunity arose.

“I’m really happy, it feels like I’m coming back to part of my life here. I really feel at home,” the goalkeeper said.

“I followed the club closely and when they called, I wasn’t in doubt. I need to play a bit more again. To come here and help build something again is really big for me.

“Huddersfield has a special place in my heart. The things we experienced those two seasons, the ups and downs, we did that together all the way.”

Huddersfield head coach Danny Cowley revealed that regular game time was a key motivation behind the move for Lossl.

Huddersfield Town supporters won’t need me to introduce Jonas,” Cowley said.

“We are delighted to be able to bring him back to the club. From the first moment we spoke, his affinity with the club and the supporters was obvious; this is very important to us.

“There was a real desire to come and help the team and the squad and a huge motivation to play regular football.

“He brings a wealth of experience, he’s a good communicator and had outstanding distribution skills.”

Lossl initially moved to Huddersfield in 2018 and made 72 appearances overall for the Terriers.
