With a contract expiring at the end of the season and Huddersfield close to being guaranteed relegation back down to the Championship, it was always going to be difficult for Jonas Lössl to stick around.
After all, the Dane has been one of the club’s better performers, and his ability on the pitch hasn’t gone unnoticed, with claims teams such as Marseille and Monaco reportedly interested in his services for next season.
Some quotes appeared on Tuesday, with a few fans of the Terriers a bit taken aback by the 30-year-old’s honesty regarding the rumours, yet when asked by Tipsbladet in Denmark about them, he was indeed very open.
He said: “It’s a huge honour. These are huge clubs. Some I could only dream of playing for. It’s a pat on the shoulder and proof that I did well when I was in France and also in the past few seasons, and that I’m currently standing on a springboard to take a step I’ve always wanted. Whether it will be there will be exciting to see.”
Tipsbladet point out that with ‘no dialogue’ between Huddersfield and Lössl regarding a new contract at the club, the likely outcome will be a parting of ways come the end of the season.
However, the Dane also didn’t rule out the possibility of remaining in England next year either.
He said: “I feel I have shown I have the level. I feel I have played two good seasons, so I’m proud. It’s not just my choice, there’s also the requirement of a club agreeing with me.”
Having played for clubs like Guingamp and Mainz in the past, the shot stopper has already had a rather good European career so far, and while the Terriers will end up playing at a lower level next year, Lössl should remain in a top division.
