Huddersfield Town manager Danny Cowley said: “Everyone knows the quality Aaron Mooy possesses. His understandable preference is to play in the Premier League, and he’s been doing very well at Brighton.

“I think the club did good business in the summer to protect the investment made in Aaron and now we wish him all the best for the future.”

Huddersfield Town chairman Phil Hodgkinson added: “We would like to thank Aaron for how he conducted himself during his time with us.

“We have a lot of fond memories of Aaron on the pitch; he played an integral part in our promotion and performed well for us in the Premier League. Knowing he was out of contract in the summer, he wanted to do right by the Club and signed a new deal with us, so we wouldn’t lose him for free.

“This move is mutually beneficial for us and Aaron. Everyone involved with Huddersfield Town would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”
