Clarke set for Terriers switch

Published Add your comment

Southend defender Peter Clarke is on the verge of signing for Huddersfield.

The 27-year-old, who has made 150 appearances for the Shrimpers and was named player of the year last season, is set to put pen to paper on a three-year deal, allowing him to return north.

He told the Southend Echo: "It's been a very hard decision for me but I've been made an offer which I don't think I can turn down."

He continued: "My wife's dad isn't too well at the moment. He's having treatment and moving back to nearer where we're from will enable her to see him a lot more.

"The length of the contract at Huddersfield also gives us some security which is important as I have my little girl to think about now but I'm leaving with a heavy heart.

"It's been good and I have some great memories from my time at Southend."
