Siewert revels in Grant deal
Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert says the club has done a good bit of business after signing striker Karlan Grant from Charlton.
The Terriers, who are rock-bottom of the Premier League, confirmed Grant's signing on Wednesday morning for an undisclosed fee, with the striker putting pen-to-paper on a deal until the summer of 2022.
Grant has scored 14 goals from 28 League One appearances this season and he could make his debut on Saturday when Huddersfield make the trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.
Speaking about the the 21-year-old's arrival, Siewert told the club's official website: "As I do, this club believes in talented young players and Karlan certainly fits that description. He's a player I'm delighted to have the chance to work with.
"Our recruitment team has put a lot of work into bringing Karlan here. Importantly, he is a natural goal-scorer; he has that knack of knowing which movement to make and finishing chances.
"He offers us something different to our current options in that he always tries to play on the shoulder of the final defender, looking to run in behind. He's an athletic, pacey player and will really fit our playing style."
