Bournemouth agree fee with Huddersfield for Philip Billing – BBC

Billing’s time at Huddersfield

Philip Billing joined Huddersfield Town in October of 2013, moving from Danish side Esbjerg fB’s youth setup to the Terriers’ youth system.

Billing was then promoted to Huddersfield’s senior side in July of 2014.

The midfielder did not feature too much in his first few years at Huddersfield, but he did play 28 games in the 2016/17 season, which saw David Wagner guide Huddersfield into the Premier League.

Billing is naturally a central midfielder, but he can also play in a more defensive role.

Billing would then play 27 games this past campaign, as Huddersfield were relegated from the English top-flight.

The now-Championship outfit finished dead bottom of the Premier League with a dismal 16 points.

Billing to Bournemouth

With Huddersfield now set to once again battle for promotion to the PL, they were probably hoping to keep hold of young talents such as Billing.

However, it now looks as though Billing will be once again honing his craft in the Premier League, in the forthcoming season.

According to BBC Sport, Bournemouth have agreed a deal with Huddersfield for the transfer of Billing.

The BBC claims that the deal could cost around £15m, and would see the midfielder sign a deal until 2024.

The report also claims that Billing is expected to have a medical on Monday.

The Cherries will kick off their 2019/20 PL campaign vs Sheffield United on August 10th.
