Former Rovers youngster Connor Mahoney has joined Championship rivals Huddersfield Town.

The 25-year-old has put pen to paper over a two-year contract with the Terriers with the option for a further 12 months.

Mahoney joined Rovers from Accrington Stanley and made his first-team debut in January 2014 at just 16 years of age.

However, the winger went on to make just six league starts for the club before deciding to move on.

He joined Bournemouth in the summer of 2017, making just two FA Cup appearances for the south coast outfit and having loan spells with Barnsley and Birmingham.

Mahoney made the move to Millwall in 2019 and played more than 50 times for the Lions prior to his release this summer.

Huddersfield head of football operations Leigh Bromby is excited by the signing and hopes the former Rovers man can “make Huddersfield Town his home and deliver consistently”.

“Connor is a very interesting player that we’re excited to work with,” he told the club’s website.

“He’s got very natural talent and his ability with both feet allows him to play through the middle or on either flank.

“That gives us important competition alongside the likes of Sorba Thomas, Duane Holmes and Josh Koroma among others.

“Connor also brings real ability at taking set-pieces, which was a fantastic source of goals for us last season. That further strengthens an area where Sorba already gives us great quality.

“His ability has seen him move around for some big fees already during his career, but his challenge now is to make Huddersfield Town his home and deliver consistently. Our staff will work very hard with him to give him every opportunity to do so.”
