Wednesday July 19th, 2017

​Huddersfield Town have provided official confirmation they have signed Tom Ince from Derby County.

The Terriers secured the services of the 25-year-old, with the player putting pen to paper on a deal that will run till 2020, at which point the club will have the option to extend it by a further year.

Ince joins for a fee believed to be £8.5m rising to £11m, which is a club record-equalling fee, and comes with big expectation to make an impact having scored 75 goals in 260 career appearances to date.

He arrives in relatively productive form having scored or assisted 55 goals in 115 appearances for the Rams during his stint there.

Manager David Wagner said of Ince in the club's official statement: "Everybody in England knows that Tom has high quality; he has been one of the best players in the Sky Bet Championship for many years now. He scores goals, creates them for others and is always a threat when he’s on the pitch, so I’m very happy to welcome him to the Club today.

"To have played over 250 games at just 25 years old is not normal; it’s great experience for a player who still has lots of space to improve."
