Huddersfield boss Danny Cowley said: "We're delighted to complete the loan move to bring Emile to the Club today, as it's the culmination of an ongoing process that began in early November.

We've got some good relationships with the Club and we're very appreciative of them loaning us one of their very best young players. "Emile will give us the creative link that we've been missing. He can play in a range of attacking positions and he can speed up our play. We're really looking forward to working with him." Smith Rowe will wear the No.32 shirt for the Terriers.
