20 June 2016

Jack Payne to sign for Huddersfield Town

Southend United will be entitled to compensation for attacking midfielder Jack Payne who will sign for Huddersfield Town once his contract runs out on July 1st.

Payne, 21, came through the Blues Academy and made his debut in 2013 against Yeovil Town in the Capital One Cup.

He finished the 2015/16 strongly with a number of eye catching displays scoring nine goals in 35 appearances in an attacking free role.

Payne had been offered an attractive new deal by Southend but has opted to join Championship side Huddersfield Town once his contract ends.

With Jack Payne being under 24 years of age, Blues will be entitled to compensation for the midfielder.
