Ligue 1 side Montpellier on Monday announced that their striker Steve Mounie was set to join promoted Premier League team Huddersfield Town.
Mounie led Montpellier’s league scoring account with 14 goals. He was reported to leave for England with a transfer fee of 13 million euros, setting a club high by bettering previous record of 12 million.
“Mounie has left the team, and he will have a medical examination before signing with the Premier League team,” said the newly-appointed Montpellier head coach Michel Der Zakarian.
Huddersfield have secured a Premier League spot next season through the promotion playoffs, their first appearance in English top-flight league for the past 45 years.
