Huddersfield Town suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday and with that, they became the first Premier League club to be relegated this season.
For the Terriers, several of their players have failed to impress this campaign and one of them is Laurent Depoitre. The forward has failed to score a single goal, while he’s registered one assist in 23 league appearances this term.
His contract with the English club will expire at the end of the campaign, but Huddersfield an option to further extend it by a year.
According to voetbalnieuws.be, the attacker will not have a lot of suitors due to his poor performances for Huddersfield this term, but that doesn’t mean an exit is ruled out.
It’s stated that Depoitre’s return to the Jupiler Pro League ‘seems to be near’ as Belgian clubs could be in the market for a striker.
However, the report does not specify or explain if any of the clubs are interested in taking the Huddersfield player.
If Jan Siewert’s side decides against taking up the option of extending Depoitre’s contract by a year, he will then leave the club as a free agent in the summer.
Should he return to Belgium then it’s likely he’ll have to take a much reduced wage.
