With a first season in the Premier League looming on the horizon, Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner has been bolstering his squad.

Free agent Danny Williams became the latest recruit to join Huddersfield Town for the club’s maiden Premier League campaign on Tuesday.

The United States international played for Reading as they lost in penalties to the Terriers at Wembley in last season’s Championship play-off final.

His contract with the Royals expired last month and the 28-year-old defensive midfielder has signed a two-year deal with David Wagner’s men.

“As our fans will have seen during the play-off final, Danny brings a lot of quality to any team he plays for,” Wagner told the club’s official website. “His way of playing – his aggressiveness, tenacity and athleticism – fits our ‘Terriers Identity’ perfectly.

“It is not usual that a player of Danny’s ability is available on a free transfer, so there was understandably a lot of interest from clubs.
