Huddersfield have completed the signing of forward Sean Scannell from Crystal Palace on a three-year deal.

Sean Scannell: Huddersfield switch

The 23-year-old made his debut for Palace back in 2007, but he has failed to hold down a regular starting role and can make a fresh start with the newly promoted Terriers.

Scannell signed a new four-and-a-half year deal with Palace last September, but he scored just four times in 37 league outings last season and Eagles boss Dougie Freedman has now allowed him to leave Selhurst Park.

Huddersfield boss Simon Grayson has been keen to add some more firepower to his squad after they gained promotion through the League One play-offs.
