Huddersfield Town captain Mark Hudson has retired from playing and moved into a coaching role with the club.

Hudson, 35, will become a full-time member of head coach David Wagner’s technical staff after calling time on his 15-year playing career.

The centre-back, who is studying for a Uefa ‘A’ coaching licence, made 109 appearances for the Yorkshire side.

“The qualities that Mark has as a person and a footballer should make him an excellent coach,” Wagner said.
