Transfer Deadline day saw Huddersfield deal with Falkirk twice on incoming deals, with Murray Wallace and Kallum Higginbotham both agreeing deals with The Terriers.

We saw Donal McDermott leave the club earlier today and that news was greeted with a mixed reaction by fans, but it left the door open to expectation that there would be new blood coming to HTAFC.

The first of that new blood came in the form of Murray Wallace, the youngster will remain at Falkirk until next season.

A good prospect for the future from reports and manager Lee Clark spoke to htafc.com:-

We’ve done extensive homework on Murray as a coaching team and we all feel that he has a massive future, both at Huddersfield Town and internationally with Scotland – their next under-21 game is on the horizon.

‘Murray is a left-sided centre half and good players in that position are hard to come by. We think we have brought in an outstanding player.’


Murray was handed a deal that runs until the summer of 2014 and his loan deal back to Falkirk has no recall clause, but as Clark goes onto explain that was key in agreeing the deal:-

‘Murray had quite a few options available, including several Championship clubs, and it’s a superb sign and compliment that he has chosen to come here. We couldn’t compete with those clubs financially, but he has bought into what we are trying to achieve and come here for footballing rather than financial reasons.

‘In an ideal world we would have brought Murray straight into our squad, but the only way the deal could be agreed was to allow him to return to Falkirk for the rest of the season. It’s not a bad thing that he will be playing regular games in a promotion-chasing side though – we saw Lee Novak arrive in great form after his deal was arranged in similar fashion with Gateshead.’
