Hudderfield Town have confirmed the signing of 22-year-old striker Steve Mounie from Ligue 1 club Montepellier.

The deal is reported to be worth a club record £11.44 million plus add-ons.

The Benin international pens a four-year-deal with the Terriers after a breakthrough season at Montpellier, scoring 14 goals in 32 starts.

At 190cm (6 ft 3 in) he will offer a large physical presence in and around the box, with Huddersfield manager David Wagner stating he has attributes suited to the Premier League.
