Terriers won't rush Mounie back

Huddersfield Town's record signing Steve Mounie will not be rushed back into action this weekend, according to head coach David Wagner.


The £11.5 summer arrival has not featured since the 2-0 defeat to West Ham United on 11 September due to a persistent heel problem.

He did, though, return to training earlier this week and is in contention to be in the squad to face Swansea City on Saturday.

“Steve has a problem in his heel and, unfortunately, it took longer than we expected and he got a setback against West Ham,” said Town boss Wagner.

“Now we want to make sure that we don’t rush him. We are happy that he is back in training. He has had a lot of minutes this week.”

Asked if he could be named in the squad, Wagner replied: “Yes, an outside chance.”
