Championship strugglers Huddersfield Town have reportedly attempted to sign Mathias Jørgensen on loan from Turkish side Fenerbache, Turkish newspaper Star have said.

The Terriers sold the Danish defender last summer for €2million, but has struggled since moving away from Yorkshire.

The Danish player has not impressed during his time in Turkey and has been unable to maintain a regular first team position in Ersun Yanal’s side.

Jorgensen – also known as ‘Zanka’ – has been quite error-prone since his arrival at Fenerbache, which has been a problem for the Turkish giants.

Now, the 29-year-old could be set to end his poor spell abroad and return to England, with his old club Huddersfield hoping to get the defender on loan, as cited by Sport Witnesss.

The centre-back enjoyed a positive couple of years in Yorkshire despite being relegated from the Premier League with them in the 2018/19 season.



It’s fair to say that his relationship with the Huddersfield fan base was a strong one. The 6 ft 3 defender offered to buy a pint for every fan who travelled to watch their side play at Southampton.

The Danish international made 62 appearances during his first stint in a Huddersfield shirt, scoring three goals and becoming a first team regular in David Wagner’s side.

So, Jorgensen could very well be set for a return to his old stomping ground, with Huddersfield Town boss Danny Cowley seemingly keen to add to their defensive ranks.

With the defender struggling for form in Turkey, not many other teams will be after the player. So this could be a very realistic signing for Danny Cowley and Huddersfield.

So far since Cowley’s arrival, the Terriers have been linked with a handful of defenders as they look to drag themselves away from a relegation battle.

Along with Jorgensen, Huddersfield have also been credited with interest in Sheffield Wednesday defender Morgan Fox.

The former Charlton defender, who was recently called up to the Wales squad, has impressed so far this season for Wednesday.

This has led to a number of clubs in the Championship gaining interest in the player, Huddersfield being one of them.
