English Championship club Huddersfield Town failed to sign Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson at the end of the summer transfer window (Sun).

Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien was trying to sort a move to the Premier League with Leeds United. But after that deal also fell through, it meant Ferguson was no longer an option for the Championship club. They had marked Ferguson as O’Brien’s replacement, should he have departed.

Now the 22-year-old is set to pen a new contract with Huddersfield Town, meaning a potential move for Aberdeen’s highly-rated midfielder is likely off the table for the foreseeable. Ferguson has started the Scottish Premiership season strongly and his form forced him into Scotland head coach Steve Clarke’s plans this month.

He is currently with the national team, an unused substitute in the first two of three World Cup 2022 qualifiers against Denmark and Moldova. Ferguson was subject to a bid from Watford at the start of the transfer window, which Aberdeen rejected. But the midfielder was not happy and handed in a transfer request.

This was also bounced back by Aberdeen but Ferguson did not sulk. He has instead put it behind him to continue cementing his place as one of the most important figures in manager Stephen Glass’ side.
