Huddersfield Town have signed Fulham defender Scott Malone for an undisclosed fee.

Malone’s capture on a three-year deal, with the option of a further year, brings Town’s tally to six permanent signings in a busy summer.

Malone was named in both the EFL and PFA’s SkyBet Championship Teams of the Year as Fulham reached the play-off semi-finals and he joins for a fee believed to be in the region of £5million, including future add-ons.

Town boss David Wagner told the club’s website: “I’m excited to welcome Scott to Huddersfield Town. Our fans will have seen in our games against Fulham last season what a good player he is and I know his abilities will suit our style of play very well.

“We already have a very good left back in Chris Löwe and a real young talent in Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, but as we enter our first Premier League season it is so important to have competition and the ability to rotate our side, as we did so successfully last season.”
