Wagner pens new two-year deal as Huddersfield boss

Huddersfield manager David Wagner has signed a new two-year contract with newly-promoted Premier League club.

Former Borussia Dortmund coach Wagner and his assistant Christoph Buehler have both been rewarded with new deals after guiding Town to the Premier League in their first full season at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Despite approaches from a number of clubs in England and Germany, Wagner recently declared his intention to stay at Huddersfield via his agent and has now signed up.

“Head coach David Wagner and assistant head coach Christoph Buehler have reaffirmed their commitment to Huddersfield Town after signing new contracts at the club,” the Terriers announced on their official website.

“David and Christoph have put pen to paper on new contracts that will run until the summer of 2019 ahead of the club’s first ever Premier League campaign.

Wagner’s stock has risen sharply since he and Buehler left their roles with Dortmund reserves to become shock appointments by Terriers owner Dean Hoyle in November 2015, following Chris Powell’s exit.

Both Wagner and Buehler penned undisclosed contracts in June last year and now Hoyle has moved again to keep them following their incredible success.
