Huddersfield Sign Striker Elias Kachunga From FC Ingolstadt Permanently

share on:

Huddersfield have signed forward Elias Kachunga on a permanent deal from FC Ingolstadt for £1.1m.

Kachunga who initially was a loan signing from Bundesliga side FC Ingolstadt 04 has signed a contract with the Terriers that runs into the summer of 2020.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner thinks there’s more to come from Elias Kachunga after signing him on a permanent deal.

Kachunga, who has fired 11 goals for Town this season and impressed all and sundry with his work ethic and forward prowess, has this week linked up with the DR Congo squad following his first international call-up for the African nation – and he is set to make his debut against Kenya in Nairobi on Sunday.

Kachunga, who turns 25 next month, has previously played for Germany’s under-21 side.

Wagner said: “I said in the summer that this move was perfect for the Club and the player, as the loan gave everyone the chance to see how Elias would adapt to English football. I think it’s now correct to say he has adapted well!

“His style of play suits the English style perfectly. He has shown that he has learned from some early experiences in his career to become a better player.

“It’s more remarkable that he came to us as a competitor at number nine, but has made the place on the right of midfield his own through his performances.

“I know he is a very popular man with the players and fans, so completing this move is a great day for the Club. The most exciting thing is that I believe, at 24 years old, there is still more to come from Elias!”
