Chelsea defender Levi Colwill: Why I chose Huddersfield

Chelsea defender Levi Colwill has explained why he joined Huddersfield Town on-loan this season.

Colwill is at Wembley today for the promotion playoff final against Nottingham Forest.

Several clubs wanted him on loan last summer but he opted for Huddersfield after being wowed by manager Carlos Corberan, Marcelo Bielsa's former No2 at Leeds.

"Chelsea guided me and I discussed it with Neil Bath [head of development] but ultimately they left the choice to me. I'm the player, aren't I?" says Colwill.

"Huddersfield lived up to the promises made but, to be honest, we're in an even better position now than imagined.

"It comes down to dedication. Nobody realises how hard we work. During the season we just got better and better. We've done well against the top teams because we're a top team ourselves."
