Huddersfield Town have announced the record signing of forward Steve Mounié from France Ligue 1 side Montpellier.
Although the exact amount is undisclosed, it is believed the exciting 22-year old has joined David Wagner's side for a fee in the region of £11.5m.
Standing at 6’ 3” tall, the powerful attacker has signed a four-year deal running until the summer of 2021 and arrives from France having scored 14 goals in 32 starts in his first full season in the French top division.
A Beninese international, who has appeared seven times for his country, the announcement of the deal was delayed as a mark of respect for Montpellier after the sudden death of owner Louis Nicollin last Thursday afternoon.
On the record deal, Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner said: “I’m delighted that we could sign Steve ahead of the start of pre-season training.
“He has a very exciting combination of attributes that makes his a very attractive proposition as a young striker.
“He has real physical attributes that should be perfect for the Premier League, plus we have already seen his talents as a football in his remarkable season in France.
“We have met and I know he is a great character. For a man of his young age, he already has great experience both in life and as a footballer from his time in France, playing in a high-quality Ligue 1.
“At just 22 years old, he is only going to improve too. Given what he is already capable of, that is very exciting.”
