Huddersfield boss Stan Ternent has revealed he's beaten Blackburn Rovers for Wakefield FC striker Tom Denton.

The 6ft 7ins forward turned down Rovers to sign a three-year deal at Town.

Manager Stan Ternent told the club's official website: "I am delighted to have signed Tom.

"He has got a great deal of potential and I don't think it will be long before the fans see him in a blue and white shirt."

He continued: "Both Crystal Palace and Blackburn Rovers were interested in him and he's someone I've had my eye on for some time now. Importantly, he's a big fan of the club, so that's a step in the right direction."
