Huddersfield boss Simon Grayson believes he has added another proven leader to his squad following the arrival of Anthony Gerrard from Cardiff.
Gerrard, 26, was signed on Tuesday for an undisclosed fee and will challenge for a place in Grayson's starting line-up with fellow central defenders Peter Clarke, Joel Lynch and Murray Wallace.
"We're delighted to welcome Anthony to Huddersfield because we've worked very hard to seal his signature amid a lot of competition from other clubs," Grayson told the club's official website.
"Just like the large majority of our summer signings - the likes of Keith Southern, Joel Lynch, Sean Scannell, Adam Clayton and Oliver Norwood - he has plenty of Championship experience.
"But also he is still a young player who has yet to reach his peak - exactly the type of player I want. He's also a real leader and you can never have enough of those on the pitch. He has a real hunger to succeed too."
Liverpool-born Gerrard began his career at Everton, but never made the first-team at Goodison and he moved on to Walsall, Cardiff and Hull before returning to the Bluebirds last season.
