A total of six players have been released including Rob Green while Dean Whitehead’s retirement is officially confirmed
Huddersfield Town have released final confirmation of their retained list for the 2018/19 season with Rob Green set to leave the John Smith’s Stadium.
As previously reported, Dean Whitehead is retiring to move into a coach role whilst the club has taken up its option to extend striker Jordy Hiwula’s contract into next season.

Elsewhere, eight players from the existing Under-23 and Under-18 age groups have been offered new deals for the forthcoming season, while five players will depart – Dylan Cogill, Cameron Taylor, Jack Boyle, Denilson Carvalho and Luca Colville.
Town have also activated their clause to extend 20-year-old striker Rekeil Pyke’s contract into the 2018/19 campaign, whilst defenders Romoney Crichlow-Noble and Rarmani Edmonds-Green have been offered new professional contracts.
Several Academy players have also been offered a third year to their existing scholarships that will cover the 2018/19 season – Oran Thompson, Sam Gibson, Isaac Marriott, Olly Dyson and George Danaher.
