The 21-year-old forward joins the Terriers for an undisclosed fee, putting pen-to-paper on a contract running until the summer of 2022.

Grant, who will take the number 16 shirt at Huddersfield Town, netted nine goals in 15 starts for League Two Crawley Town during the second-half of last season. He then backed that up with 14 goals for the Addicks in League One this season.

“As I do, this Club believes in talented young players and Karlan certainly fits that description. He’s a player I’m delighted to have the chance to work with.

“Our recruitment team has put a lot of work into bringing Karlan here. Importantly, he is a natural goal-scorer; he has that knack of knowing which movement to make and finishing chances.

“He’s only 21 and he will improve here, for sure; he’s an exciting English talent, for sure. He can play a big part in this Club’s present and future.”

– Jan Siewert, Huddersfield Town Head Coach
