The new manager of Huddersfield Town has remarked on whether fresh signings would be made before the January transfer window starts.
Darren Moore has indicated that he has no plans to enter the free agent market after joining Huddersfield Town. Dom Howson reports that the 49-year-old will work with the squad he has until the January transfer window opens next year.
The summer transfer window closed at the beginning of September, although clubs can still add free agents to their rosters.
Those who do not have a club can continue their hunt for a new team outside of the conventional transfer windows.
Moore, on the other hand, is content with the players he already has and will not seek fresh recruits until the new year.
How has Darren Moore performed so far at Huddersfield Town?
Moore took command of Huddersfield Town’s debut game as manager on Monday evening, as the squad traveled to Coventry City.
Michal Helik’s 94th-minute goal sealed a draw for the new coach, giving him a positive start to his tenure with the Yorkshire team.
Moore’s team fell behind in the 27th minute thanks to a goal from Brighton loanee Yasin Ayari.
However, Huddersfield poured people forward in the closing moments in an attempt to take something from the game, with Helik rewarding the side for their aggressive efforts with a last-minute equalizer.
Moore was just appointed last week, following Neil Warnock’s departure.
After their 2-2 draw with Stoke City on Wednesday night, the 74-year-old stood down as manager.
Moore had been without a club since leaving Sheffield Wednesday in the summer.
His new goal will be to maintain the team in the Championship, with the ultimate goal of climbing the table and competing for a spot in the top half.
How has the season started for Huddersfield Town?
The John Smith Stadium had a sluggish start to the current season, but a four-game unbeaten streak has lifted the team to 17th in the standings.
The Terriers have nine points from eight games, with eight of those points coming during their current unbeaten streak.
The distance to the bottom three is now four points, with Huddersfield looking to shift their emphasis to the top half of the table.
Moore’s team is only four points out of the play-off places, illustrating how tight the table is at this juncture in the season.
Huddersfield Town’s next game is at home against second-placed Ipswich Town on Saturday.
Should Huddersfield search for free agents despite Moore’s comments?
Huddersfield’s poor start to the season suggested that a handful of new players might be required to turn things around. However, their recent record indicates that this is a competitive group that should be able to compete in the Championship without danger of being eliminated.
Last season was a challenging one for the team, but after avoiding relegation, it is currently on a more positive path.
Moore is an exciting replacement for Warnock, and his judgment should be trusted when evaluating if Huddersfield require any new recruits.
