And after impressing Thomas Tuchel in pre-season last summer, Anjorin could yet get a go in Chelsea’s senior squad later this year.
The 6ft 1in ace, also linked with Southampton, joined the Blues in 2008 and made his senior debut in September 2019.
Anjorin has a total of five appearances for the Stamford Bridge side and was loaned to Lokomotiv Moscow in September for the season.
Anjorin looked sharp in Russia as he scored once in nine appearances before suffering a leg fracture.
And Chelsea have apparently decided he will not be returning to Lokomotiv for the rest of his loan, instead remaining in England to gain minutes at Huddersfield.
The Terriers are enjoying a strong campaign and are firmly in the hunt for a play-off place.
Anjorin is now set to help Huddersfield achieve their dream of returning to the Premier League.
And should he impress, the England U20s star could yet have a future at Chelsea under Champions League winner Tuchel.
The German boss said last summer: “When the season ended we agreed he [Anjorin] stays for pre-season and he’d get the minutes he deserves.
“Unfortunately, before the first friendly, Tino was the guy to test positive for Covid and really suffered for ten-to-twelve days.
“You could see today that it was the first time he was back on the pitch and it was a lot for him to start with 30 minutes. So he was unlucky with the situation, he had no responsibility for it.

“So, honestly, I can’t really judge him and what I saw today in five, ten minutes was very promising again.
“He is strong, confident, creative, assists and scores a lot of goals in training for us. I just wished we had the possibility to see him against Peterborough, Bournemouth and Arsenal so he could really make a statement.
“Now the season more or less starts again. So he has suffered without having any responsibility for it.”
