Rudoni signs for Huddersfield in club record move

Midfielder moves to Championship club

15 July 2022

We can confirm that a deal has been agreed with Huddersfield Town for the transfer of Jack Rudoni.

A product of AFC Wimbledon’s successful Academy programme, Jack departs the Cherry Red Records Stadium. Under the terms of the contract agreement, we are unable to disclose the fee, but it is a club record by some margin since we reformed. 

The attacking midfielder was handed his debut in 2019 and went on to clock up 106 appearances and 17 goals in yellow and blue.

He now takes the next step in his career with the Terriers and naturally leaves with our best wishes. The club looks forward to seeing Jack play at the very highest level.

Jack sent us the following farewell message after completing his move:

I just wanted to send you all a message following the news that I am leaving the club this summer.

I have been at Wimbledon since the age of 11 and made my first team debut in December 2019 at the age of 18.

I have loved playing for this team and am proud and grateful of the relationship I have built with our fans, and will never forget the support you have given me as a young professional.

I am really looking forward to the next stage in my career at Huddersfield Town.

Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you all in the future when I come back to visit.

Johnnie Jackson had this to say after the completion of the transfer:

“I want to wish Jack all the very best at his new club. He’s a top young player that I’m sure will go on to have a great career. He came through our Academy system, so naturally we’re very proud to be producing young players of a high quality.

“Since getting the job I was made aware of the interest that various clubs had in Jack and he made it clear that he wanted to pursue that interest. He conducted himself brilliantly during pre-season. We’ve managed to agree a deal which suits all parties.”

Academy Manager Michael Hamilton added:

“On behalf of the Academy, I’d like to wish Jack the best of luck in his future career and I have no doubts that if he continues to apply himself as he has up until now, he has all the potential to fulfil his personal ambitions.

“What’s important is to recognise in a story like Jack's is that his progress has not always been linear. When he was 13/14 he wasn’t the most physical so we (Academy staff) had to be specific with the type of development he received and experienced. He was played in different positions to encourage certain attributes to be developed and then he experienced a couple of loans which helped him transition into the senior game. We are proud of his career to date and will be keeping an eye on him and his progression.”
