2020 PFAI Young Player of the Year Danny Grant has completed a move to English Championship side Huddersfield Town on a contract until 2023.
The former Bohemians man was out of contract at the Dalymount Park club, however as the winger is under 23, Bohs are still entitled to compensation.

Bohs had rebuffed a previous attempt from the Terriers, but the Yorkshire club have now announced that Grant is to join them on January 2, subject to international clearance.
Instead of paying training compensation, Huddersfield will instead pay Bohs a fee for Grant, whose contract ends on December 31.
Speaking on the signing, Huddersfield's Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromley stated his excitement in bringing the Ireland under 21 international to the John Smith's Stadium.
“We’re delighted to welcome Danny to the Club today, and to begin working with him. He’s an exciting player who has the potential to really develop here.
“Danny has a lot of attributes that really suit our style of play. He’s a right footed player who can play across the front three but is particularly adept at cutting in from the left side. Just as importantly, you can see his enthusiasm in games, both when attacking and in doing his defensive work."
Bromley stated that Grant will play with the club's B Team upon his arrival in Yorkshire in order to adapt to a new league.
I don’t usually trust many online sources for transfers, but Danny Grant has liked this tweet about joining Huddersfield so that’s good enough for me! #htafc #terrierinbound #welcomegrant pic.twitter.com/S1fVtMwUsP

Over the course of his League of Ireland career, Grant scored 14 goals in just 60 appearances for Bohs. Furthermore, his performances last season led him to win the PFAI Young Player of the Year, beating the likes of teammate Dawson Devoy and Crystal Palace-linked Brandon Kavanagh to the award.
Grant is another of Bohs squad to have left Dalymount Park in the 2020 off-season, with the likes of Dan Mandroiu leaving for Shamrock Rovers, Paddy Kirk heading to Longford and Dinny Corcoran moving to Drogheda United.
