Derby County have made Jacob Butterfield their eighth signing of the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old midfielder has joined the Rams from fellow Sky Bet Championship side Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee.

The former England Under 21 international squad member, who was Huddersfield's Player of the Year for the 2014/15 campaign, has signed a four-year deal until the summer of 2019.

"I’m delighted that we’ve been able to bring Jacob Butterfield to Derby County. “As I’ve stated publicly in the last few weeks, if we were going to add to our squad it would be a case of making a quality addition rather than bringing someone in just to make up the numbers. “In Jacob, we have a very talented player and an individual that is experienced at Championship level."

– Head Coach Paul Clement
