Peterborough United have strengthened their already star-studded squad by completing the loan signing of Reece Brown from Championship side Huddersfield Town.
Reece Brown Joins Peterborough United on Loan
Struggling to Break In
Brown moved to Huddersfield in the summer from League Two club Forest Green Rovers. He was signed by then-manager Jan Siewert, but the German was sacked by the Terriers less than a month into the season.
Under the new stewardship of Danny and Nicky Cowley, Brown has found game time hard to come by in West Yorkshire, therefore taking a step down in divisions in search of more regular minutes.
Prior to joining Huddersfield, he spent two years at Forest Green, making a total of 94 appearances and scoring 14 goals.
He started his career at Birmingham City, appearing 20 times for the Blues in the Championship as well as in various cup competitions.
What Was Said
In an interview with the club website, Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson said: “We have tracked Reece since the summer. We tried to do business with Forest Green in the summer, but understandably he wanted to go to the Championship and to a team that had just been relegated from the Premier League.
“It hasn’t worked out as well as he would have hoped. They have had a change in manager so we have been consistent all the way with this one. It is a good signing for us, he scores goals from midfield, he is technically very good and we hope that he can improve us.
“He can play in a variety of positions, in the 10 or on the right side of the diamond. He can play anywhere really, the thing I liked about him is he fits in to a variety of different ways that we can play. He has a bit to prove and I am looking forward to working with him. I think it is important that we have stuck to what wanted to do, we were in for him in the summer and we just had to wait a little longer to get it done.
“I want to thank the chairman and the owners for backing us on this one and getting it done. We have been working on it for a while now and I am delighted to get it done.”
