Juninho Bacuna: I chose Huddersfield over PSV offer

Juninho Bacuna accepts he faces a big challenge to establish himself at Huddersfield Town.

The former FC Groningen midfielder, 20, moved to the Terriers this week.

Bacuna told AD: "When you go from FC Groningen to the Premier League, you can speak of a top transfer.

"I indicated earlier that I am ready for a next step in my career. I did not know much about Huddersfield Town until a month ago, but it is a club that wants to build on young talents. I am one of them. I also get the chance to develop myself."

Bacuna admits he chose Huddersfield ahead of an offer from Eredivisie champions PSV Eindhoven.

He added: "There was indeed interest from the Netherlands, but that was it. The choice fell on Huddersfield Town. I am very happy with that."
