Last week, Jonas Lössl, Philip Billing and Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jørgensen all used the international break to talk up potential summer exits from Huddersfield Town.
The first two were most frank, with Lössl explaining how happy links with AS Monaco and Marseille made him. There hadn’t been a great number of such links, and it’s fair to say it’s not a big issue in the sport media close to the two French clubs.
Billing was as blunt as he could possibly be: “I have been in Huddersfield for a long time, so this summer it is time to try a new challenge.
“I’ll try something new. The Premier League is great and I love the English football culture. I know there is interest from others in the UK and abroad.”
Again, there’s not been a great deal of concrete reports of interest in Billing, although he’s likely to have a choice of clubs should it come to it.
Zanka was a little more cagey, but made it a clear a Huddersfield exit is very much a possibility.
Today’s edition of Ekstra Bladet has a feature on 15 Danish players who could be moving clubs this summer.
The Terriers trio get a mention.
For Lössl, there’s no mention of interest from anywhere, but it’s stated he shouldn’t have a problem finding a club given he’ll be a free agent.
For Billing, there’s said to be interest from England and ‘other nations’.
When it comes to Zanka, there’s an interesting twist. The Danish newspaper believe the Huddersfield player works so well with David Wagner that it can’t be excluded he joins the manager wherever the German ends up.
This would perhaps fit in with the defender’s comments about his future last week, when he talked about the changes at Huddersfield and sounded like he may not be appreciated there so much since Wagner left.
