Chelsea talent Tino Anjorin re-joins Huddersfield on loan

Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin has re-joined Huddersfield Town on a season-long loan, with both clubs now confirming the transfer.

The attacking midfielder, spent the end of last season on loan at the Terriers, making eight appearances and scoring one goal.

He now returns to the Championship club with the ambition of consistent first-team football and progressing as a player at the promotion-hopeful side.

Good move for the youngster.

The return to the John Smith’s stadium is a good move for Anjorin, who despite only having limited game time, showed glimpses of what he could do last season.

The midfielder, who is of Nigerian descent, came through the youth ranks at Cobham and made 76 appearances for Chelsea’s youth teams during that time.

Anjorin also went on loan to Lokomotiv Moscow in September 2021, and made nine appearances for the Russian club including a particularly impressive performance against Marseille in the Europa League.

Anjorin has also made 21 appearances for England’s various youth teams, scoring six goals, and will be eager to properly showcase his talent in the Championship next season.
