Jonas Lossl has been Huddersfield Town’s number one for two seasons now, but could that finally be about to change for the remainder of this season and beyond?
Lossl may not have been consistently brilliant in between Town’s sticks but, he has stood out in a below-par side this campaign and is certainly a candidate for their Player of the Season.
The 30-year-old arrived from Mainz 05 prior to their opening season in the Premier League on a season-long loan. Fellow ‘keeper Ben Hamer also moved to the Terriers to challenge for the number one spot. Lossl’s deal was then made permanent ahead of this campaign.
However, he was not in Jan Siewert’s matchday squad for the loss to Crystal Palace at the weekend as he and his family watched on from the stands. Siewert opted for Hamer, telling the media that “the best players who have trained well should be on the pitch”. With Hamer impressing in the defeat, Lossl might not find his way back into Town’s starting side and that poses the question as to what is next in regards to his future?
The Dane is out of contract in the summer and it seems almost certain that Lossl will move on elsewhere, rather than joining Town in the Championship.
Lossl himself has, somewhat surprisingly, responded to rumours linking him away from the John Smith’s Stadium to Marseille and Monaco. He spoke to Danish outlet Tipsbladet regarding the links and said: “It’s a huge honour. These are huge clubs. Some I could only dream of playing for.” So, it would seem his heart is not completely set on Town next season.
He has been a great servant to Town, but the time seems right for both to part ways at the end of the next campaign.
