Huddersfield Town have signed goalkeeper Luke Coddington after his release by Middlesbrough.

But with the 20-year-old set to work with the development squad, head coach David Wagner still intends to bring in two more stoppers.

The former England junior international is the grandson of former Town defender and captain John Coddington.

He has signed a one-year contract, with Town having the option of a year’s extension.

Coddington played in Town’s Professional Development League II home clash with Leeds United in February as a trialist.

Centre-half John played 356 times for Town between 1955 and 1967, when he joined Blackburn Rovers for £20,000.

He later coached at Middlesbrough, where Luke was born.

Matthew Coddington, son of John and father of Luke, was also a keeper at Middlesbrough, but never made the first team.

Luke will join Town on July 1 after the departures of Lloyd Allinson, Ed Wilczynski and Sam Guthrie.

He will compete with Tadhg Ryan in Frankie Bunn’s development squad.

Town’s head of goalkeeping Nick Colgan said: “We are clear in how many goalkeepers we want at the club and we’re looking to recruit to our Under 21 group; goalkeepers with a decent pedigree and the potential to kick on.

“Luke came in to train with us and you could see he is a talented boy, which is why he’s been capped by England at lower age groups.

“He has had a lack of game time, but we like what we have seen and he is a decent addition to our Under 21 group.

“The ball is now in Luke’s court to work hard every day and to keep progressing.”

Town continue to be linked with a loan deal for Liverpool’s Wales international keeper Danny Ward.

The 22-year-old was an unused substitute in Wednesday’s Europa League final, when the Reds were beaten 3-1 by Sevilla in Basel.
