Huddersfield Town's on-loan striker Elias Kachunga has told the Huddersfield Examiner he is looking forward working with head coach David Wagner.

The German striker has signed a one-year loan deal at the John Smith's Stadium, having struggled to settle at German outfit Ingolstadt, failing to find the net in ten appearances.

But the 24-year-old has already been impressed by what he's seen in West Yorkshire, and feels confident of recapturing the promising form shown at former club Paderborn, where he scored 13 goals in two seasons.

And he feels fellow countryman Wagner is the perfect man to help him get his career back on track.

He told the Huddersfield Examiner: "I know [Wagner] from Borussia Dortmund. We had a good conversation and he had a lot of good things to say about this club.

"He is a German coach and it is a good place for me to start in the Championship.

"I hope I can get a lot of minutes and can show what I can do."

The new forward is currently away with his new teammates in Sweden as part of the club's preseason plans, with Town coincidentally set to take on his parent club next month.

But it is the prospect of a season in the Championship that has Kachunga most excited, with Wagner's men set to take on Brentford on August 6th.

He added: "For me it is a big step in my life. I have come to a new country, a new club, a new league and I hope I can help the team to have a good season.

Terriers fans will be hoping Kachunga can find his scoring touch next season as the club look to improve on last term's disappointing 19th-place finish.
