Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of Danish international goalkeeper Jonas Lössl on a season-long loan from Bundesliga club FSV Mainz 05.

The 28 year-old joins the Terriers on loan until 30 June 2018, with the option to complete a permanent transfer after that.

"He was part of a club in Mainz that had a difficult season in 2016/17 and that is why we have this rare chance to take a player of his quality on loan. I trust and believe in his talent and potential."

International striker Laurent Depoitre is joining Huddersfield Town from Portugal's FC Porto for an undisclosed club record fee. The newly promoted Terriers signed a two year deal last night with an option to stay for a further year beyond the summer of 2019.

The 28 year old is the club's first signing since gaining promotion to the Premier League. He has played in the Champions League as well as winning the Belgian Pro League and Super Cup.

"I am very happy that we have made Laurent our first signing of this summer window. He is a proper striker; one who has played for a very good Belgium side, featured in elite European competition and who has won domestic titles. It is great news that we have had the opportunity to sign a player of his quality and now we will focus on getting him back to the top form he showed only a season ago. He scores goals and is a real worker too, so he will fit the ‘Terriers Identity’ very well. His attitude on the pitch is exactly what we need, plus he is a very good character off the field too. I’m already looking forward to working with Laurent when we return to PPG Canalside for pre-season in early July.”
