‘I’m not interested in blaming anyone,’ Kevin Nagle revealed plans for January transfer ahead of Championship trip to Norwich City.

Huddersfield’s wealthy American owner, Kevin Nagle, has unveiled plans for a rescue mission in the upcoming January transfer window as the Terriers prepare for their Championship match against Norwich City. While Norwich has increasingly relied on Mark Attanasio and his group from the Milwaukee Brewers in the past year, Huddersfield, too, has sought investment from the United States.

Nagle, a businessman who acquired Huddersfield last summer and also owns the USL soccer club Sac Republic, expressed concern over the team’s performance under manager Darren Moore, who has managed to secure only two victories in his first 15 games since taking over from Neil Warnock in September. Currently positioned 21st in the league, Huddersfield faces a critical situation just outside the relegation zone, trailing by two points.

Following a recent 3-1 home league defeat to Preston, Nagle took the unusual step of addressing Huddersfield fans directly on social media. He acknowledged the frustration among supporters, emphasizing the need for a more compelling on-field product. Nagle declared his arrival in England on January 4, committing to spending the entire month actively engaging with the club. He expressed his intention to ask challenging questions of everyone involved, from players to management to executives.

Nagle outlined a proactive approach for the upcoming transfer window, promising strategic, surgical, and aggressive moves to acquire the necessary talent. Recognizing the fans as customers who invest time and money for the sake of escapism, he pledged to deliver a product worthy of their commitment. Nagle avoided laying blame but focused on identifying and addressing problems swiftly.

Despite potential disagreements, Nagle assured fans that he would be equally invested in the club, emphasizing a commitment to overcoming challenges and building a sustainable and successful team. The owner’s optimistic vision contrasts with the team’s recent struggles, and he vowed to restore pride in the club.


The article concludes with a reference to Huddersfield’s previous encounter with David Wagner, who inflicted a 4-0 defeat on his old club in August. Wagner is expected to provide a comprehensive fitness update on his squad, with the US international Josh Sargent on track to return during the festive period.
