It's only April, but Huddersfield Town have already announced their third signing of the upcoming summer.

David Wagner has once again turned to his homeland to improve his defensive options, and the club have confirmed that centre back Michael Hefele will join on July 1 when his contract with Dresden expires.

He's the third recruit behind Rajiv van La Parra, who will join permanently after the close season, and left back Chris Löwe - who will also arrive on a free transfer in July.

A 6ft4in defender, the 25-year-old Hefele has captained his current side to promotion to the 2.Bundesliga, but has swapped Germany for a new challenge in Yorkshire from next season, penning a three year deal.

And fans are loving the next stage of the Wagner Revolution.

There is great anticipation ahead of next term, with credit going to manager and chairman alike.

And plenty are embracing the new German infiltration at the John Smith's Stadium.

While there is plenty to admire in the effective strategy employed by the club's scouting and recruitment departments ahead of the traditional transfer window.

A few tongue-in-cheek tweets are starting to appear predicting the ultimate glory.

But whatever the final position next term, the new man's style is already a hit.
