Former Republic of Ireland schools international defender Jake Carroll has signed for Huddersfield Town from St Patrick’s Athletic.

The 21-year-old left-back joined the Saints in 2010, and has made over 50 appearances for the Richmond Park club. He has signed for Huddersfield on an undisclosed fee, but will remain with Liam Buckley’s side until July.

Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins was full of praise for his new signing, telling the club’s official website: “Jake impressed me a lot when he was here a few weeks ago on trial. He is left sided, quick, powerful and has a good attitude with an aptitude to learn quickly. He will have to adapt to the style of football in England, but he arrives with the challenge of breaking into our First Team.

“Ireland is an interesting market for English clubs. A lot of talented Irish players arrive in England at 16 years old, in the same way that we recently recruited the country’s Under-16 Captain Danny Kane from Cherry Orchard, whereas others are identified after emerging in a League of Ireland team at aged 20 or 21, such as James McClean and Seamus Coleman. Jake comes under the latter of those two routes.”
