Karlan Laughton Ahearne-Grant (born 18 September 1997), known as Karlan Grant, is an English footballer who plays as a forward for Huddersfield Town.

Club career[edit]

Grant was top scorer for Charlton Athletic U18s during the 2012–13 and 2013–14 seasons while still a schoolboy.[3] Less than a week after his 17th birthday, on 23 September 2014, Grant signed a three-year contract with Charlton.[4] He made his professional debut shortly after on 30 September 2014, as an 89th-minute substitute in a 1–0 victory against Norwich City.[5] He later made his first start on 18 October 2014 in a 1–0 loss against AFC Bournemouth.[6] He scored his first competitive goal for the Addicks first team in a 4–1 Football League Cup win over Dagenham & Redbridge.[7] On 26 September, he scored his first league goal for Charlton in a 2–1 loss to Cardiff City.[8]

On 30 January 2018, Grant joined Crawley Town on loan until the end of the 2017–18 season.[9]

Huddersfield Town[edit]

On 30 January 2019, Grant joined Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee, signing a contract until the summer of 2022 with the club.[10] He made his debut for the Yorkshire club three days later in a 5–0 away loss to Chelsea where he came on as a substitute.[11] On 9 February 2019 Grant scored his first Huddersfield goal on his second Town appearance in a 2–1 home loss against Arsenal.[12]

International career[edit]

In February 2014, Grant represented England U17 in the Algarve tournament.[3] On 6 November 2014, Grant was called up to the England U18 squad for a double header against Poland.[13] He played for England U19 in September 2015, against Croatia.[14]

Personal life[edit]

In June 2018, whilst on holiday in Ibiza, Grant and fellow teammate Reeco Hackett-Fairchild were arrested on suspicion of a sexual assault on a 19-year-old woman.[15]

In the summer of 2018, he dropped the Ahearne part of his surname, to become known as Karlan Grant.[16]
