Huddersfield Town have strengthen their defensive option by signing Cardiff City captain Mark Hudson, for a nominal undisclosed fee.
He has signed a two-year contract at The Terriers and has been given the squad number four.
The 32-year-old has played over 300 football league games for Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic and at Cardiff.
Speaking to Huddersfield’s official website, caretaker manager Mark Lillis said: “The Club has stayed patient to bring in the right man to improve the central defensive options and that has been rewarded with this arrival of Mark this evening.
“Organisation and experience are very important attributes in the heart of your defence and Mark has both in abundance. He is a leader with vast experience of the Championship and is a massive arrival for this football club.
“There are not many centre backs of his type and quality around; he can be a hugely influential addition.”
The right-side centre half has twice won promotion to the Premier League with Crystal Palace and Cardiff City.
