Ex-Liverpool youngster joins Huddersfield Town


Adam Hammill has joined Championship outfit Huddersfield Town, signing a three-year-contract.

Hammill joins Huddersfield following Wolverhampton Wanderers' relegation from the Championship, with the Midlands side struggling to manage the wage bill that contains a crop of players still on Premier League wages. 

Hammill began his career with Liverpool, working his way through the youth levels before being promoted to the first team in 2006. 

Following this, he was sent out on-loan to four clubs to gain experience in the hope that it would help him force his way into the Liverpool first team on his return. 

But loan moves to Dunfermline, Southampton, Blackpool and Barnsley didn't do enough to convince Rafael Benitez to offer him a new deal, and he left in 2009, re-joining Barnsley on a permanent deal. 

Hammill spent two further seasons at Oakwell before making the move to Wolves. He performed well for Wolves, making 23 appearances before making the move to the John Smith stadium, where he spent the first half of last season on-loan. 

And Hammill couldn't hide his delight after signing for Mark Robins' side. 

"I'm absolutely delighted that I've been able to come back to the club. For me it was a no-brainer.

"I have a lot of repaying to do for the faith the club and the fans have shown in me; that made a massive impact upon me. 

"The support I got from the club during my loan spell was second to none," he told Huddersfield's official website. 

Hammill was also full of praise for Town manager Mark Robins, whom he worked with during his time at Barnsley. 

"I'm also delighted to be working with a familiar team and the manager who, in the past, has brought my full potential to the fore.

"The manager knows my strengths and weaknesses; he gave me that freedom to express myself on the pitch and my spell under him at Barnsley was the best of my career to date. 

"I think he deals with players excellently on a one-to-one basis and he's been the right manager for me. I have no doubt that I will thrive under him again," Hammill added.
