EXCLUSIVE: Man City in constant contact with Huddersfield over Mooy

Huddersfield Town's Head of Football Operations Stuart Webber says Manchester City are taking a lot of care with Aaron Mooy.

The Premier League giants signed the Australian midfielder from sister club Melbourne City in June before sending him out to the Championship on a season-long loan.

Huddersfield were the team lucky enough to land the services of the 25-year-old for the 2016/17 campaign and it already appears to be a shrewd move by all parties involved, demonstrated by the impressive early-season form of both the player and the table-topping Terriers.

Regarding City's plans for Mooy, Webber admits he is unaware of just exactly what Pep Guardiola and co. expect of the former Bolton Wanderers and St Mirren man but the Huddersfield chief knows that City are certainly interested in how he gets on in West Yorkshire.

“In terms of Man City's plans, that's not for us to comment," Webber told Tribalfootball.

“The first part of the plan was to get him a strong loan within Europe, not necessarily England, and fortunately for us they chose us, and fortunately for him we chose him as well.

“As for their overall plan for Aaron, I would never expect them to tell us.

“Hopefully it will be to let him come here for the next four years but I don't think that will be the case.

“They want to know how he is getting on, they want feedback. The want Aaron's clips, Aaron's statistics, so Man City are in constant contact."

City would have been delighted with the Terriers' report of the weekend's 1-0 win over Leeds United as Mooy produced a stunning winner in the 55th minute to keep David Wagner's side on top of the Championship table.
