This is his sixth loan spell away from Old Trafford having previously spent time with Belenenses, Rochdale, Vitoria Setubal, Kortrijk and Hearts.

He becomes the fourth player for United to go on loan this season with Tahith Chong joining Werder Bremen, goalkeeper Matej Kovar joining Swindon Town and Aliou Traore moving to Caen for a season-long loan.

Huddersfield Town head coach Carlos Corberan told their club website: “Joel Pereira is a player that covers all the demands we have from our goalkeepers. In terms of his reflexes, domination of the box, covering spaces and distribution of the play – all of these abilities are something that aren’t easy to find in a ‘keeper.

“For me it’s a very positive reaction from the Club, in terms of getting a replacement from Ryan Schofield’s injury.

“We are looking forward to working with players with potential that allow us to grow as a club.
