Steve Mounie has left Huddersfield Town to join French Ligue 1 side Stade Brestois 29 on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee – It has been announced.
The 25-year old striker joined the Terriers from Montpellier HSC in 2017 for a club-record £11.5 million and played a big part in the club’s survival during their 2017/18 Premier League season.
The Benin forward made 95 appearances for Town since his arrival and scored 19 goals during that time.
Leigh Bromby, Huddersfield Town’s Head of Football Operations, commented: “Steve was going into the final year of his contract and with that in mind this transfer made complete sense for the club.
“He has certainly created a lot of happy memories with us, so we thank him for that and wish him all the best for the future.”
An emotional Steve Mounie took to Instagram to post a message to the Huddersfield Town fans:
“I’m getting emotional while I’m looking at all these pictures and videos.
“I would like to thank every people who works at the club. You gave me a warm welcome from day one until the end so thank you very much.
“Special mention for the fans. I can’t thank you enough for all these years, you have been nothing but amazing towards me. I seriously got tears knowing that I’m leaving you and that I won’t hear my song at the John Smith stadium again.
“This is heartbreak but that’s the life of a footballer and I hope you will keep following me through my next adventures. Keep supporting the team as you do, there is some young lads coming up, help them to shine.
“Now I’m joining your side as a Huddersfield Town fan. Take care and be sure that I will always remember you.”
Mounie has a combined 34 goals at both previous French clubs.
Brest finished 14th in Ligue 1 last season and have started the current campaign with two losses (4-0 and 3-2) to Nimes and Olympique Marseille.
They are hoping the addition of Steve Mounie will add more goals to their team.
