Depoitre Looks Homeward Bound

Depoitre Looks Homeward Bound

Huddersfield forward Laurent Depoitre is reportedly set to be targeted by clubs in his homeland of Belgium in the summer.

The 30-year-old, who joined from Porto in summer 2017 and scored six Premier League goals to help the Terriers survive last term, has struggled this season, having failed to score in 25 appearances in all competitions.

Depoitre has not featured in Jan Siewert’s squad since suffering an ankle injury in the defeat at Newcastle on February 23 and now does not appear to be in the manager’s plans given that he was left out of Saturday’s squad at Crystal Palace despite being fully fit.

The player, who scored in his only appearance for Belgium in a Euro 2016 qualifier against Andorra in 2015, is out of contract at the end of the season.

And with the Terriers facing life back in the Championship after their relegation was confirmed against Palace at the weekend, it seems highly unlikely that Depoitre will be offered fresh terms.

It means he will be available on a free transfer and reports are already circulating that several clubs in Belgium will be looking to offer a deal to the former Gent man.
