Huddersfield have today announced that Christopher Schindler has put pen to paper on a new contract that will see the defender stay at the Terriers until at least 2021.
‘His quality really shone through’
On Schindler signing a new deal Huddersfield Head Coach David Wagner stated,
“We all knew that ‘Schindy’ was a top, top performer after his first season at Huddersfield Town, but his quality really shone through as we played in one of the best leagues in the world last season. He took to the Premier League as if he has played in it all his life.
“We’re absolutely delighted that he has signed this new contract at the Club; it’s as good as any news or incoming that we had success with during the summer transfer window.
“As well as being a superb player, he is a top character in the dressing room too; a real leader.
“I still believe that he will continue to improve as a player, too, which is very exciting for all our fans and myself too.
“This is a great boost as we prepare for Chelsea and the start of the new Premier League campaign.”
Before signing with his current club Huddersfield, Schindler had spent all of his career in Germany with 1860 Munich.
Schindler played 47 games for 1860 Munich’s under 19 side, in which he scored three times.
The 28-year-old would then be promoted to 1860 Munich’s second team in July of 2009 and would go on to make 39 appearances for them, scoring three in those games.
He would eventually make his debut for 1860 Munich’s first team in 2010 before going on to play 166 games for them, in which he scored four and assisted two.
Huddersfield would then sign Schindler in July of 2016 for a fee of around £1.98m.
The German has since played 87 games for Huddersfield over two seasons which has seen Huddersfield promoted from the Championship and spend a season in the Premier League where they managed to fight off relegation.
