Liverpool Under 21 midfielder Conor Coady is the next man to leave Liverpool in Brendan Rodgers’ summer clear out, as the former England youth international joins Championship side Huddlesfield Town on a three year deal, with an option for a fourth. The 21 year old midfielder impressed when on loan at League One side Sheffield United last season, and after reportedly turning down bigger wages, Coady becomes the fourth player to join the Yorkshire-based side. During his time with the Blades, Coady racked up 50 appearances, including an FA Cup Semi-Final appearance against runners-up Hull. Having been dubbed as the next Steven Gerrard, Coady failed to make an impact for this boyhood club since making his debut in November 2012 in a Europa League tie against Anzhi, and only appeared once more for the Reds and that was 6 months later, when Coady came on as a 88th minute substitute against Fulham at Craven Cottage. Coady joins the Championship side for an initial £500,000 fee, with more being due depending on performance related add-ons.
The defensive midfielder will more than likely make his debut tomorrow when Huddlesfield host AFC Bournemouth in the opening game of the Championship season.
