Terriers keeper keen to establish himself as top dog
Joel Coleman hopes to battle for the Terriers number one spot despite the club appearing to be on the lookout for a new goalkeeper.
Within the last few days, Town have been linked with a £2million swoop for Sheffield Wednesday’s Keiran Westwood, interest in Fiorentina’s Bartlomiej Dragowski and a loan deal to bring Aaron Ramsdale in from Bournemouth.
But Coleman, who made his Premier League debut for Town in the final game of the season at Southampton, is raring to compete for the jersey again next term.
The 23-year-old certainly put down a firm marker to be Jan Siewert’s first-choice with his save to deny James Ward-Prowse at St Mary’s, but is taking nothing for granted about next season with Huddersfield Town.
‘It was a dream come true for me, I’ve trained all my life to become a professional keeper and to play in the top league is a dream come true – no-one can ever take that away from me,’ said Coleman, who was recalled from loan at Shrewsbury in January, after signing a two-year contract extension with Town last summer.
‘I loved every second of it, played with no pressure and I hope I’ve made a good impression for next season going forward and to try and stake my claim to be pushing for that No1 spot.’
