Philip Billing was once considered to be one of the Football League’s brightest young prospects when he first emerged as a regular for Huddersfield Town in 2015.
A defensive midfielder who also has the habit of producing the spectacular, the Danish player was given the chance to demonstrate his talents by former boss David Wagner and later played an integral role in helping the Terriers reach the top-flight for the first time in 45 years.
Last season saw Billing make 16 Premier League appearances as his side staged a miraculous run to ensure their survival yet unfortunately for Huddersfield supporters, the club are not going to be able to repeat this feat during the current campaign.
Jan Siewert’s side are currently sixteen points away from safety and can be relegated at the weekend if they lose to Crystal Palace and both Burnley and Southampton win their games.
With Championship football looming next season, the Terriers must start to consider who to keep and who to let go and despite Billing making 20 appearances in the top flight this season, he should be one of the players to depart the John Smith’s Stadium in the summer after a string of poor performances for the club.
By cashing in on the midfielder, Huddersfield will be doing both parties a favour as they will be able to garner a respectable fee whilst on an individual basis, the 22-year-old could benefit from a fresh start. Over the past 12 months, Billing has struggled to develop as a player in such a poor side and may need to leave in order to get his career back on track.
Although he has only illustrated his talent on a sporadic basis during his time with Huddersfield, the Denmark under-21 international should still be able to secure a future in the Premier League, even if this means leaving the club that gave him his senior debut in football.
What do you think Terriers fans? Should the club cash in on Billing in the summer? Or should they do everything they can to keep the midfielder? Get in touch below.
