Jonas Lossl is unlikely to return to Huddersfield Town on a permanent basis, according to chief executive Mark Devlin.

Huddersfield Town chief executive Mark Devlin has admitted that goalkeeper Jonas Lossl is unlikely to make a permanent return to the John Smith's Stadium.

Lossl signed for Everton on a free transfer from the Terriers last summer but was returned to Huddersfield on loan in the January transfer window.

The 31-year-old is yet to make a single appearance for Carlo Ancelotti's side, but Devlin does not believe that the Danish goalkeeper will make a permanent return to the Championship outfit.

Speaking to Yorkshire Live, Devlin said: "I think it is unlikely. Jonas was keen to come back to Huddersfield Town because he really enjoyed his time here and has a good relationship with the fanbase.

"He came here because he wanted to play football and he wanted to make sure he did everything he could to be in the international squad.

"In answer to the original question, my gut feeling is I think it is unlikely. His wages would be above those we would normally be able to afford, given that he is obviously with a Premier League club.

"We love having Jonas here and it is great to have him here - he's a great character. But, being really honest about it, it is hugely unlikely we would be able to afford to keep Jonas past the end of the season."

Lossl has made seven appearances for the Terriers in England's second tier this season.
