New signing Antony Kay says he would relish the opportunity to captain Huddersfield Town.The midfielder moved to Town on a free transfer from Tranmere Rovers, where he skippered the side last season. "If he [manager Lee Clark] wants me to be captain the team them I'd love to do it," Kay told BBC Radio Leeds. "I was captain at Tranmere last season and I know it helped me play much better. I thrive on the added pressure and perform much better." Since his arrival at Huddersfield manager Clark has alternated the captain's armband, but has hinted he is looking for a personality like Kay to lead his side next season. The West Yorkshire side beat a number of Championship and League One clubs to 26-year-old's signature. "I could have signed for a few Championship clubs, but once I came down to the club and met Lee and the chairman their ambitions appealed to me," Kay explained. "It is sad to leave Tranmere Rovers as I had some good times there and I wish them all the best but I am a Barnsley lad so it's nice to be back in Yorkshire. "When I played against Huddersfield last season I was impressed with their passing game and they were a good team. "Now I'm here I think there is no reason why we can't achieve promotion next season."
