Huddersfield Town have signed striker Fraizer Campbell on a two-year contract on a free transfer, as announced by their official club website today.

The 31-year-old has been in the hunt for a new club since being released by Championship side Hull City at the end of last season.

Campbell, who is from Huddersfield, has put pen-to-paper with his hometown club for the first time in his career.

He joined Hull two years ago and scored a combined 18 goals over the previous two seasons and will offer the Terriers more options and depth up front.

Huddersfield have lost and drawn their opening two games against Derby County and Queens Park Rangers respectively and will be keen to get their first three points when they face Fulham at home on Friday.

Their boss, Jan Siewert, is pleased to have brought Campbell to the club having been linked with him for a while now. He has told their website today: “Fraizer joins us on the back of some good form in the Championship last season and straight away is an option with pedigree at this level.”

“He’s a great guy with a lot of experience and growing up in Huddersfield means he really gets the area and knows exactly what we’re all about. I know there will be an instant connection with the supporters and I’m sure they will give him their full backing as one of their own.”
