The Premier League welcomes three new clubs every season, and one of them had themselves a busy Friday as they made several key moves.

Promotion playoff winners Huddersfield Town announced the signing of Australia’s Aaron Mooy, while also extending the contract of German-American manager David Wagner -- who has overseen the squad since November 2015.

In signing Mooy, the 26-year-old become the most expensive Australian to sign with a PL side after completing a $17 million move from Manchester City.

Mooy went on loan with the Terriers during the 2016/17 Championship campaign and scored four goals in 45 appearances for the new top-flight team.

Meanwhile, Wagner will continue to manage Huddersfield until at least the conclusion of the 2018/19 season after helping the club reach England’s first division for the first time since 1972.
