Huddersfield Town have finally agreed on a fee with Lincoln City for marauding left-back Harry Toffolo as reported by Sky Sports Assistant News Editor Lyall Thomas.
Thomas tweeted this morning that talks are now at an advanced stage over personal terms and Toffolo looks set to reunite with his former boss Danny Cowley.

Cowley signed Toffolo for the Imps in 2018, and the former Norwich trainee has been a permanent fixture in the Lincoln City team ever since. He was outstanding in the Imps League Two title-winning season, and he’s clocked up an impressive eighty-five appearances in eighteen months at Sincil Bank.
Toffolo is an extremely popular figure at Lincoln, not only for his consistently good performances ta left-back but also for his readiness to engage with fans and get involved in the club’s community projects. Emotional scenes greeted his apparent goodbye to the Lincoln faithful after Tuesday’s 5-1 win over Bolton.
However, any hopes the protracted negotiations had stalled over the fee, and Toffolo might stay at Lincoln, now appear to have been dashed.
Huddersfield are not only getting a top player but Toffolo will add humility and professionalism of the highest order to their troubled dressing room.
He is more than ready for the Championship, and while Imps fans will be disappointed to lose a firm favourite, most will wish him all the best for his move and follow his progress carefully.
Lincoln fans also that the money they get for Toffolo will further help Lincoln boss Michael Appleton re-shape the squad in what is starting to look like another exciting time for Imps fans.
