David Wagner has agreed a new deal to stay at Huddersfield Town despite offers from other clubs.

The German guided Huddersfield to an unlikely promotion to the Premier League after winning the play-off final against Reading last week.

The former Borussia Dortmund Under-23 manager's success at Huddersfield has brought him to the attention of several other English and German clubs, but Wagner has opted to stay at Huddersfield as they plan for life back in England's top flight.

The 45-year-old took over the Terriers in November 2015 and he masterminded promotion in his first full season in charge at the John Smith's Stadium.

Wagner only signed a new deal last June, but Huddersfield are keen to reward him a bumper new deal after leading the club to the Premier League.

The news will come as a massive boost to Huddersfield who feared that Wagner could be tempted away to a bigger club in the wake of his success with the Terriers.

Wagner's agent, John Morris, confirmed to Sky Sports News HQ that the deal was agreed and that preparations were well underway for next season in the Premier League.

Morris told SSNHQ: "David and I have received approaches from other clubs in Germany and England but we felt that the journey with Huddersfield has another story to tell.

"Preparations for the Premier League are well under way with David and the hierarchy at Huddersfield."
