Former Huddersfield Town attacker joins Rotherham United on loan from German Bundesliga 2 club

Rotherham United have made their 11th signing of the close season with the season-long loan acquisition of Joseph Hungbo.

The former Huddersfield Town player, 24, joins for the 2024/25 League One campaign from German second-tier side FC Nürnberg.

Hungbo spent a decade in the academy system at Crystal Palace before moving on to Watford. He had loan spells at Aldershot Town and Ross County before moving to Huddersfield for the 2022/23 Championship season, his three goals in 14 appearances helping the Terriers escape relegation.

Millers boss Steve Evans – who has had a busy close season rebuilding a squad that was relegated from the Championhip – said: “Joe gives us strength, power and superb pace in both wide areas.

"The lad also gets a goal and at set plays delivers some real quality.

“I watched him closely when he played in the SPL and with Huddersfield Town and was on my list for us to approach.”
