Huddersfield's Isaac Mbenza Close to Completing Move to Ligue 1 Side Amiens

Out-of-favour Huddersfield winger Isaac Mbenza is closing in on a deadline day move to Ligue 1 outfit Amiens.

The 23-year-old featured regularly for Huddersfield in the Premier League last campaign, making 22 appearances. 

However, he has struggled for game time at the John Smith's Stadium this season, playing just twice since Danny Cowley took over in September.

Cowley has begun to stamp his mark on the side in his first ​transfer window with the club, bringing in four players - Andy King, Richard Stearman, Emile Smith-Rowe and Frazier Campbell - and letting six players depart the club, including Aaron Mooy's permanent move to Brighton.

According to ​Sky Sports, Mbenza is set to be the seventh player to exit Huddersfield this transfer window, with Amiens in talks to sign the winger.

Mbenza was made available for ​transfer at the beginning of the window, and he now looks set for a return to France with the struggling Ligue 1 side, who find themselves flirting with relegation.

Mbenza only singed permanently for ​Huddersfield in the summer following a year long loan spell with the club during the 2018/19 season, with the Terriers paying Montpellier a fee believed to be in excess of £8m to secure his services.

The Belgian winger signed a two year contract, but has featured just five times in the Championship this season, with his last appearance coming way back on 1 October against Stoke.

Mbenza scored his only goal for the Terriers during their 1-1 draw at home to ​Manchester United in May, a result that ended the visitor's ambitions of reaching the ​Champions League.

If the deal can go through before the deadline, it will cap a successful transfer window for Danny Cowley, with Herbert Bockhorn the only player deemed surplus to requirements who is yet to secure a move away from the John Smith's Stadium. 

Importantly for Huddersfield, there have been no moves for key players Karlan Grant and Steve Mounie, both of whom were sources of transfer speculation.
