Premier League club legend joins Championship side after leaving Rangers

Former Rangers midfielder Andy King has found a new club barely a fortnight after leaving Ibrox, with the Leicester City midfielder moving to Championship side Huddersfield Town.

The Foxes legend was on-loan at Rangers for the first half of the season but struggled to make an impression in a competitive midfield.

After making only five appearances, King was eventually sent back to the King Power stadium as the 31-year-old looks to prolong his ageing career.

With his future in the East Midlands looking all but over and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, King moves to former Premier League outfit Huddersfield in the English Championship.

Huddersfield are in the midst of a disappointing campaign in the English second tier this season and find themselves 20th despite only being relegated from the English top-flight last year.

Terriers boss Danny Cowley has said that what King wants to achieve this year is in line with the ambitions of the West Yorkshire side.

“There’s a real alignment with what we’re striving to do and Andy’s goals for the rest of the season,” said Cowley [Huddersfield].

“We’re fighting to maintain our position in the league and Andy is incredibly determined to do well, as he’s out of contract soon and fighting to make the Wales squad for the upcoming European Championships.”

A 50 cap Welsh international, King played 329 league games for Leicester since 2007, coming up with the side through the lower leagues to Premier League glory in 2016.

This has earned him legendary status amongst the Foxes support.
