Huddersfield Town have the history of a top-flight team

Huddersfield made it six play-off penalty shoot-out wins out of six as the Terriers booked their place in the Premier League for the first time ever after a dour Championship Play-Off final against Reading at Wembley. Stam believes he and David Wagner, both in their first management jobs, are reaping the rewards of being given the freedom to implement a distinct philosophy. "The Huddersfield manager as well - in Germany, football there has been changed a lot in the last couple of years".

Its one of the richest prizes in football, especially with a £170m windfall for victor and nearly £300m if they survive a second season and is one for players to stand up and be counted.

"I want to go to the top, I played at the top as a player and I want to as a manager".

Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Danny Ward, centre, lifts the trophy after winning the English Football League Championship play-off final against Reading, at Wembley Stadium, in London, Monday May 29, 2017.

The manager stayed at Huddersfield in December amid interest from Wolfsburg and Lowe is confident he will not be lured away this summer.

"I am so happy because when I arrived, people said I had no experience, no experience of British football, no experience of players - I always had to fight against that", Wagner said. At some point of my career I feel I deserve a shot at the Premier League and I cant think of a better way of getting there than on Monday.”. "It makes total sense to think only about Reading".

Whatever happens, Wagner and Huddersfield have performed wonders to reach Wembley.

"It was a great experience for me at Pittodrie because I went to places like Macedonia and Kazakhstan and we set a new record for wins in a row".

Town could name the same XI that started the second leg of their semi-final win over Sheffield Wednesday. "Normally you don't get in the play-off final in the first season but we did", Stam said. "The players have shown they're capable".

"I'm so emotional. To say I've been supporting this club since 1969, to be a Premier League team now - dreams come true", Hoyle told Sky Sports.

For Huddersfield to be on the brink of cashing in is incredible to Wagner, who is close friends with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after working under him at Borussia Dortmund.

His form attracted plenty of suitors, with Wells becoming Bermudas first million-pound footballer after signing for Huddersfield for a then club-record fee of £1.3 million in January 2014.

"Now, by asking Seamus to be the mascot at Wembley, they have given our family another gift we are all so grateful".

"But to win and get a team promoted to the Premier League and be part of it is unbelievable".
