VfB Stuttgart have announced the signing of Simon Terodde.

The striker had been linked with a move to Huddersfield Town , but any supporters hoping to see him in blue and white stripes at the John Smith's Stadium next season will be left disappointed.

Terodde scored 25 goals for VfL Bochum in the German second division last term, as well as contributing seven assists, and was linked with a series of clubs both in his home country and abroad.

But Stuttgart have today confirmed they have won the race for his signature, and he has agreed a three year deal with the 2. Bundesliga outfit.

Town have already confirmed the signings of Michael Hefele and Chris Löwe from the German football pyramid.

But when asked about the possibility of adding Terodde, David Wagner was always keen to point out the profilic forward would have no shortage of suitors.

Speaking in March, he said: “I know him, but then every manager in the Championship and probably most in the Premier League know him.

“He was the top scorer in 2 Bundesliga last season and is the top scorer now.

“We have to be realistic about what kind of player we are speaking of."
