Steve Mounie Joins Huddersfield For £11.44m, Jorgensen For £3.5m

Huddersfield Town have signed striker Steve Mounie from Montpellier for a club record fee.

The 22-year-old joins for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £11.44m (13m euros) plus add-ons.

The Benin international, who scored 14 goals in 32 starts for Montpellier last season, has signed a four-year deal.

"He has real physical attributes that should be perfect for the Premier League," said Huddersfield head coach David Wagner.

The Terriers have now broken their transfer record three times in a fortnight. Porto striker Laurent Depoitre joined for £3.5m on 23 June before Manchester City midfielder Aaron Mooy was signed for an initial £8m last week.

"We have met and I know he is a great character," Wagner added. "At just 22 years old, he is only going to improve too. Given what he is already capable of, that is very exciting."

Mounie has been capped seven times by Benin, but does not require a work permit as he has dual French nationality.

Could Huddersfield be a surprise package next season?

Never heard of him so can't really pass comment but they're certainly very active.

It'll be interesting to see how they do, they finished way behind Newcastle and Brighton points-wise last season so do have a bit of catching up to do.

Very busy summer, building a whole new team. Huddersfield have now signed Mathias Jorgensen from FC Copenhagen for £3.5m

that's a very good signing. Champions League experience in a tight defence. Impressed me both times we played them last season. Absolute bargain for that cost too.
