Midfielder joins from Terriers after successful season-long loan
Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce that an agreement has been reached to make Kyle Dempsey’s loan move a permanent transfer from Huddersfield Town.
Dempsey joined Town on a season-long loan from the Terriers in September, and has now penned a three year deal with the Cod Army which will commence on July 1st 2017.
The 21 year-old has been a crucial part of Uwe Rosler’s midfield, and was crowned Young Player of the Season at the club’s fans’ awards night earlier in the year. Dempsey scored twice in 45 games but laid on seven goals for his teammates.
Chairman Andy Pilley, on the deal, said: “This is a huge signal of intent for Fleetwood Town to be able to sign a player of Kyle’s calibre on a permanent basis.
“His displays for us this season haven’t gone unnoticed and we’ve had to fight off a number of clubs from our division and the Championship to tie him down for the future.
“We feel we have a bright future at the club and we are all delighted Kyle will be part of the journey in the long term. It’s a signing which I’m sure excites all our fans."
