MELBOURNE (REUTERS) - Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town have agreed a club-record £10 million (S$17.6 million) fee with Manchester City for Australian international midfielder Aaron Mooy, British media reported on Friday.
The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at Huddersfield and played in their play-off final win over Reading, which secured them a place in the Premier League.
Mooy signed a three-year contract with City last year after playing with the Manchester club's wholly owned A-League side Melbourne City.
If confirmed, the transfer fee would more than make up for the reported US$10.25 million Manchester City paid to buy Melbourne City outright.
Mooy never made a senior appearance for Pep Guardiola's side, but his transfer to Huddersfield includes buy-back and sell-on clauses.
The Sydney-born midfielder has been capped 24 times and scored five goals for Australia.
