Huddersfield Town: Siewert must avoid the temptation to sign Aaron Ramsdale

After being given the impossible task of keeping Huddersfield Town in the Premier League upon his arrival in West Yorkshire, Jan Siewert will be hoping that he can achieve a far better outcome next season when the club makes its return to the second tier.

Yet in order to compete in what is arguably the toughest league in world football, it is clear that the German will need to make some drastic alterations to his squad over the coming months.

Although the Terriers need to make improvements in a number of positions this summer, Siewert’s number one priority must be to find a sufficient replacement for goalkeeper Jonas Lossl who will be leaving the John Smith’s Stadium in June when his contract expires (via BBC Sport).

Having already been linked with several different shot-stoppers, it is imperative that Huddersfield bring in the right player as a failure to do so could end up leading to a disastrous 2019/20 campaign.

Therefore, with the pressure firmly on Siewert to make the correct call, he simply has to resist the temptation to sign AFC Bournemouth keeper Aaron Ramsdale.

According to the South London Press, the Terriers are reportedly interested in bringing in the Cherries star on loan with Millwall also in the running to secure his services.

Although the £450k-rated ace (via Transfermarkt) was extremely impressive during his season-long loan spell at AFC Wimbledon, it would be an almighty risk for Huddersfield to take when you consider that he has no previous experience at playing in the Championship

By deciding to bring him in over a keeper who has a track-record of performing at this particular level, it would not be at all surprising if the Terriers experience another season of struggle as Ramsdale may not be able to cope with the pressure.

What do you think Huddersfield fans? Would you welcome a move for Ramsdale this summer? Or does his lack of experience at Championship level concern you? Get in touch below.
