Alex Pritchard wanted Huddersfield Town move, says Norwich City boss Daniel Farke


German head coach says the 24-year-old was desperate for the transfer after sealing a £11m move to the Premier League side

Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke revealed Alex Pritchard was the chief architect of his move to Huddersfield Town.

The attacking midfielder joined Town for an undisclosed fee – believed to be in the region of £10m with add-ons – on a three and a half year deal.

Pritchard spoke of his desperation to make the most of a second crack at the Premier League in his first interview as a Terrier.

Now Canaries chief Farke has outlined the 24 year-old’s top-flight targets, while hailing his personal qualities.

“I’m disappointing to lose a key player but it was his wish to move,” he said.

“Alex made it clear he wanted to make this move and it’s up to me to find a solution.

“He appreciated being at Norwich but, at his age, he saw his chance to play in the Premier League.

“Alex is a good lad and a good character. It’s sad when players like that leave but that’s football – we have to move on.”

With a loan deal to send Yanic Wildshut wrapped up on Friday morning, City fans accused their club of a fire sale – with former Town Sporting Director Stuart Webber taking flak aplenty.
