Aaron Mooy has completed his return to the Premier League, joining Brighton on a season-long loan from Huddersfield.

The midfield linchpin was a key cog in Huddersfield’s promotion from the Championship in 2016-17, and proved his worth with two stellar seasons in the Premier League before the Terriers succumbed to relegation in May.

The Australia international becomes brings up the double figure landmark of summer acquisitions for new boss Graham Potter, with key additions all over the squad including striker Neal Maupay (undisclosed), winger Leandro Troussard (18m) and defender Adam Webster (18m).

 

Speaking on his new recruit, Graham Potter said: “He has played very well over the past two seasons in the Premier League, and will bring a different option and added competition to our midfield.

“He’s been a talisman for Huddersfield in recent seasons with his performances on the field; and he’s proved to be an excellent professional both on and off the pitch.

“I’m looking forward to working with him, and he is another good addition to our squad ahead of the new season.”

The addition of Mooy is expected to wrap up a busy window at the AMEX with Potter outlining Brighton’s intentions in the time remaining.

“No. We’ll be happy with what we have,” he replied when asked about further additions.
