Huddersfield trio Rajiv van La Parra, Tommy Smith and Jonathan Hogg sign new three-year contracts.
Huddersfield have rewarded three more promotion winners with new contracts.
After handing German pair Chris Lowe and Elias Kachunga fresh terms last week, captain Tommy Smith, midfielder Jonathan Hogg and winger Rajiv van La Parra have all signed new deals.
The trio have penned three-year contracts until the summer of 2020, with the Terriers holding the option of a further 12 months.
Smith, Hogg and Van La Parra played a crucial role in Huddersfield’s surprise promotion to the Premier League and boss David Wagner says they will also have a big impact at the top level.
‘In addition to the news of extensions for Chris Lowe and Elias Kachunga last week, the new contracts for Tommy, Hoggy and Rajiv are very important pieces of business for this club,’ he told Huddersfield’s official website.
‘All three players were so important to the team last season – key to the success we enjoyed – and will continue to be big players for us this season.
‘Tommy had a standout season last year and full deserved the recognition he received from his place in the Team of the Year.
‘I said to him very early into my time here that I believed he could be one of the best right backs in the Championship and he achieved this through hard work on the training pitch every day. He’s a big figure in the dressing room too; he was a superb leader for us on and off the pitch last season.
‘Everyone knows I love Hoggy too. He is the player that embodies our Terriers Identity more than any other and I know he will relish the challenge of showing this against the top-quality midfielders of the Premier League this season.
‘He’s another huge character in the dressing room and his winning mentality is exactly what we need as we face a new challenge.
‘Rajiv is such an exciting talent and I fully believe that he still has a big space to improve, which is great considering what a threat he is for us on the pitch already.
‘Last season, we were a better team when Rajiv was playing; he can cause the opposition problems and is a big asset in our transitional play. I’m looking forward to seeing how he adapts to the Premier League challenge too.’
