Huddersfield Town Break Their Club Transfer Record For The Third Time This Window

Following the record signings of both Aaron Mooy and Tom Ince, Huddersfield Town have again smashed their club record transfer by securing a deal for Steve Mounie.

The 22-year-old striker joins from Montpellier for a reported £11.4 million and signs a four-year contract after successfully undergoing his medical a few days ago.


Mounie rose to prominence following his performances in France's Ligue 1 which saw him bag 14 goals in 32 starts, finding a spot within the top ten scorers in the league.

"I'm delighted that we could sign Steve ahead of the start of pre-season training," Huddersfield boss David Wagner said on his latest recruit.

"He has real physical attributes that should be perfect for the Premier League," he added.

The German boss highlights his age and believes he can only improve. "We have met and I know he is a great character. At just 22 years old, he is only going to improve too. Given what he is already capable of, that is very exciting."

The club have now broken their transfer record an impressive three times this summer window. Laurent Depoitre started off proceedings signing from Porto for £3.5 million before the transfers of both Mooy and Ince which are reported to be club-equaling deals.

But Mounie's £11.4 price tag sees him top the list ahead of Huddersfield's other summer signings.

As well as Mounie, the club confirmed the signing of U.S international Danny Williams, last night. Announcing the deal on Independence Day.

Williams played against Huddersfield in the Championship Play-Off final, and Wagner was clearly impressed of his performance as he joins their books.
