Yorkshire news Corberan view on Aarons and whether Huddersfield Town will look to free agents MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - The Terriers head coach gave his view on Newcastle winger's touted move to West Yorkshire falling through at the final moment, Karlan Grant's move to West Brom, and the free agent market
Breaking News ! Huddersfield Town head coach Carlos Corberan insists the club need to move on from the disappointment of missing out on signing Newcastle United’s Rolando Aarons on transfer deadline day after the departure of Karlan Grant. The winger’s intended move to the John Smith’s Stadium fell through in the final moments as the paperwork was not quite completed in time. Asked after the 2-1 win over Swansea what he personally knew about the Aarons situation as it unfolded on Friday, Corberan said: “We had our full focus on Swansea because we couldn’t lose our mind on the work we had because we knew how complicated this game would be. “In the end my only focus is to work with the players we have. “We know to add one other player to the front of the attack to give us more options would be one possibility, but at the end we need to accept what happened and continue working.

“The positive thing is that we are working now more time with Adama Diakhaby, we are working now more time with Isaac Mbenza, we are working more time now with Josh Koroma, we are working more time now with Fraizer Campbell, and what we hope is to have a good recovery with Danny Ward, because he is one other striker we signed too and unfortunately we don’t think we are going to have him available in the next period of time. “So what we need to do is between the players we have right now in attack, we need to solve the situation.” Corberan nonetheless believes that having resolution on Grant’s long-awaited departure is an overall positive for the club, saying: “Yeah, no doubt, because I think the decision was clear. “He had the dream to make a movement to a Premier League club and the club understood that before I arrived here, so from the beginning it wasn’t in the plans to have him in the squad. “That’s why we only used him in one pre-season game and then none of the official matches, because my feeling was from the first minute that he wouldn’t be ready to help the team during the year.”
Five conclusions: Corberan's ploy, Mbenza's rebirth and Huddersfield Town's unanswered questions
The free agents Huddersfield Town could still sign to replace Karlan Grant
Town can still sign free agents despite the transfer window closing, a situation they took advantage of in signing first-team regulars Fraizer Campbell and Danny Simpson last campaign. Asked if that is again an option for the club, Corberan said: “Always we need to be focused about the market, in the free agent players and of course injuries can happen. “Sometimes you can have an injury that makes a movement or sometimes just the need is there and you need to make a movement. “This was a special market for everyone and now some of the players are going to be free and some of the players who are free will be in good condition. “So we need to be focused on having a couple of players in each position because this year the Championship is totally different because we are going to have more games in less time, and on top of the normal injuries you have to manage the covid situation. “The more games, less time, injuries and covid make it that we need to be always working in the market too.”
