Arsenal flop Yaya Sanogo seals move to Huddersfield until the end of the season

Published on: 25 February 2021

Former Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has joined Huddersfield Town until the end of the season.

The 28-year old was a free agent after leaving Toulouse last summer. Sanogo made 20 appearances for Arsenal over four seasons, scoring one goal. He also had spells at Crystal Palace, Ajax and Charlton.

Sanogo has a Champions League goal to his name and Terriers boss Carlos Corberan is hoping to be the manager who finally unlocks the Frenchman.

'Yaya is a player who has a background in English football, something that can make his adaptation to the Championship easier,' the Spaniard said.

'Physically he has a different profile to the strikers we already have in attack and it can help to increase the offensive versatility of the team.

'He has been training with a professional team in France from September until he made the journey to England, which means he should be in a better physical condition.

'He will still need a little time, and we will work with him to make him ready to help the team in the last part of the season.'

Sanogo was spotted as a future star after notching 10 goals in 13 games for Auxerre back in 2012/13, moving to the Emirates on a free transfer.

He scored only once – against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League – in 20 appearances for the Gunners, going on-loan to Crystal Palace, Ajax and Charlton before moving on to Toulouse in 2017.
