Huddersfield Town transfer latest: New signing Kyle Hudlin allowed to join AFC Wimbledon on loan to fast-track development
The giant striker, who is 6ft 9in tall, only joined the Terriers on Wednesday, signing a two-year contract that runs until June 2024, with the club having the option of a further year’s extension.
But to continue his education, the former Solihull Moors forward, 22, has been allowed to immediately join the Dons on loan for the 2022-23 campaign.
Town have paid a development fee for Hudlin due to the fact that he was under 24 and offered a new deal by Moors.
With Hudlin initially viewed as a development signing for the B team, the decision has been made to 'fast-track' his progress by allowing him to head to Wimbledon, who completed the sale of star player Jack Rudoni to Huddersfield on Friday lunch-time.
A break clause has been inserted into the deal, which can be activated in January.
Hudlin joined Solihull Moors in October 2020 after catching the eye with his prolific goalscoring record for lower league sides Boldmere Sports, Social Falcons and Solihull United.
He netted 16 goals for the fifth-tier club, most recently scoring in the Vanarama National League Play-Off final against Grimsby Town at the conclusion of the 2021/22 season.
