Fleetwood new boy Damien Johnson has revealed it was the club's ambition which lured the midfielder to the newly-promoted League Two outfit.
The 33-year-old, who played in Huddersfield's League One play-off final win over Sheffield United, had the chance to make his loan permanent with the Terriers.
But instead he chose a free-transfer move to Fleetwood after being released by Plymouth Argyle.
"They had a great season and they're not happy just being in League Two," Johnson told BBC Radio Lancashire.
"I sat down with the manager (Micky Mellon) and the chairman (Andy Pilley) and they convinced me that they wanted to have a go next season.
"They were very enthusiastic and very positive about next season and convinced me that this was the right place for me."
