After this season, Town will have the option to make the agreement permanent.

Amsterdam-born Burgzorg has played in the Eredivisie with De Graafschap and Heracles Almelo and has also had a spell in Italian football at Spezia.

Manager Neil Warnock said: “We’ve made no secret of the fact that we’ve wanted to add to our forward options in this window, so it’s good that we’ve agreed this deal with Delano.

“Our recruitment team have looked at the players that are available and he feels like the one who fits the bill, because he should add a different dimension to our play.



“When I talked with Delano, it was clear that he was very keen to come over to England and prove what he can do. He’s desperate to show that he can handle the Sky Bet Championship. I’m looking forward to working with him.

“He gives us options in that frontline, a bit of pace and power. I think he’s at a lovely age where they want to learn as much as they can.

“He impressed me when we spoke to him. We’ve nothing to lose, really.”

Burgzorg is Town’s close-season signing following the captures of keeper Chris Maxwell and defender Tom Edwards. The club are also close to a couple of other signings.


Sporting director Mark Cartwright commented: “We’re excited to bring Delano to Huddersfield Town. He’s a player we’ve watched carefully and who comes with strong recommendations from my contacts in Germany.



“Compared to the other forwards at the club, his playing style is unique. His first instinct is to close the distance, which he successfully does with his quick pace and straightforward demeanor. He can provide an X Factor to our play and has good flare as well.


“I must express my gratitude to Jake Edwards and Kevin Nagle for helping us finalize the Delano purchase. We are optimistic that we can add a few more reinforcements with their support before the opportunity closes.
