Olagunju signs new deal with Terriers


YOUNG Huddersfie­ld Town defender Mustapha Olagunju has signed a new contract.

The 19-year-old’s deal will see him stay at the Terriers until the summer of 2024.

Central defender Olagunju made his Town debut earlier this season, starting the FA Cup third round tie against Plymouth Argyle.

Mustapha is now on loan with League 2 side Port Vale his third spell away from Town after short spells with Tadcaster Albion last year and seven appearance­s for National League South side Welling United earlier this season.

Huddersfie­ld Town’s Academy Manager, Emyr Humphreys, said: “Since signing his first profession­al contract with the club in August 2019, Mustapha has continued to impress and has taken further steps forward in his developmen­t.

“It’s his determinat­ion and attitude to succeed and work hard that’s been most impressive and that’s allowed him to reach new heights this season.

“His current loan spell at Port Vale will have aided his developmen­t both on and off the pitch and we’re all excited to keep working with him and to see how far he can go.”

Before joining the Terriers, Olagunju – who was born in Plumstead – has previously played for XYZ Academy and Kent Football United.
