Aussie star insists he needs to speak with parent club before commenting on where he will be at next season
AARON MOOY is remaining tight-lipped over his future – despite Huddersfield’s shock promotion.
The Aussie ace, on loan from Manchester City, has been Town’s key player this season.
Prem new-boys Newcastle and Brighton have been linked with a move for the playmaker this summer.

But Huddersfield may well fancy their chances of signing Mooy again – either on another loan or permanently – now they have reached the top flight too after Monday’s play-off final win over Reading.
Yet when asked if he will stay at the John Smith’s, Mooy said: “I can’t say anything.
“I’ve got to speak to my agent and Man City. I’ve told them to not talk to me until the end of the season.”
Mooy, 26, joined Town on loan from City shortly after joining Pep Guardiola’s side from Melbourne City last summer.
He has arguably been the Championship’s best performer, regularly displaying an ease on the ball and an eye for a pass.
The midfielder has grabbed four goals and seven assists in an amazing campaign which he admits he never believed was possible when he arrived at the club.
Mooy added: “This is miles past (expectations). When I first came, I knew Huddersfield came 19th last season, so expecting to be promoted was ridiculous. It’s a big fairytale.
“I thought about half-way through the season, we’d played everyone, I just thought we had a chance, because we’re a good team.
“We stuck to it, we had some bad runs but we came back strong and got ourselves into the play-offs. And we’ve done it, it’s unbelievable.”
The shock promotion was achieved despite a Town player failing to score a goal throughout their play-off campaign.
Their sole strike came through a Tom Lees own goal in the second leg of the semi-final against Sheffield Wednesday.
While Huddersfield also managed a -2 goal difference in the regular campaign, despite finishing fifth.
Chris Schindler hit the winning spot-kick in the shoot-out against Reading but Mooy played his part with a confident penalty just before, firing low into the bottom-right corner.
On the experience of a shoot-out, which Town also experienced in semi at Hillsborough, Mooy added: “It’s horrible, horrible, horrible. The last two games we’ve had, penalty shootouts, so dramatic. At the end, it obviously makes up for it all. So much joy and happiness.”
“It’s been amazing experience, I couldn’t think of it going any better, very proud, very proud to be part of this team.”
One player who is keen to return to Town is Izzy Brown, who has enjoyed a fruitful loan spell from Chelsea.
The England youth player, 20, added: “I want to play at the highest level possible. I believe in myself and think I can play in the Premier League.
“Hopefully next season, I can come back to Huddersfield or get a chance with Chelsea. I’ll be waiting. I’m ready to take my chance.”
