Manchester City will sell Aaron Mooy before he’s played a minute for the club.

The 26-year-old Australian midfielder joined the Premier League side from Melbourne City on July 1 last season, and was sent on loan to Huddersfield Town.

He was the Terriers player of the season while on loan, and has led David Wagner’s side to a club record purchase.

Mooy will reportedly cost Town $10 million with the fee rising as high as $13 million, with a buyback clause included in the deal.

Only one player, German back Christopher Schindler, played more minutes in Huddersfield Town’s run to the Premier League.

Mooy has 22 caps and five goals for Australia, and he’ll be on the Confederations Cup roster when it begins this weekend.
