English Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town have agreed a club-record 10 million pounds ($12.78 million) fee for Manchester City’s Australia midfielder Aaron Mooy, British media reported on Friday.

The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at Huddersfield and played in their playoff final win over Reading, which secured them a place in the English top flight.

Mooy signed a three-year contract with City last year after playing with the EPL team’s wholly owned A-League side Melbourne City in the Australian top flight.

If confirmed, the transfer fee would more than make up for the reported $10.25 million Manchester City paid to buy Melbourne City outright.

Mooy never made a senior appearance for Pep Guardiola’s side but his transfer to Huddersfield includes buy-back and sell-on clauses.

The Sydney-born midfielder has been capped 24 times and scored five goals for Australia. ($1 = 0.7825 pounds) ($1 = 1.3168 Australian dollars)
