David Wagner has signed a new three-year contract to remain as Huddersfield Town head coach.

Wagner's assistant Christoph Buhler and first-team coach Andrew Hughes have also had their deals extended until the end of 2020/21. 

It comes after the trio secured safety in Huddersfield Town's first season as a Premier League club, finishing 16th. 

“The decision to extend my stay at this club was not a difficult one," Wagner, 46, told the club's official website.

"A message to Huddersfield Town fans everywhere: thank you for the support you have shown us and the players since I joined the club. It’s been such a big factor in the success we’ve enjoyed.”

Wagner and the Terriers will discover their first opponents of their second PL season when the 2018/19 fixtures are released at 09:00 BST, 14 June.

The news follows Huddersfield Town's appointment of their new Sporting Director, Olaf Rebbe, who will join the club on 1 June.
