DONE DEAL: Huddersfield sign Nurnberg midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri

Huddersfield have swooped for Nurnberg midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri.

Huddersfield have completed the signing of Sabiri from Nurnberg for £1million, the Premier League side have announced.

Sabiri has signed a three-year contract with the Terriers, who will have the option of a further year's extension in 2020.

The 20-year-old, who was born in Morocco but has dual German nationality, scored five goals in seven starts in the second half of last season in the German second tier.

Terriers manager David Wagner told the club website: "I'm very happy that we have been able to add Abdelhamid to our squad in this summer window; he is one of the most exciting talents from the German leagues.

"Abdelhamid made a big impression in Germany with his performances for Nuremberg in the second-half of last season.

"The number of goals he has scored from his position is very impressive, which comes from good football intelligence.

"When I have talked to him, I have been very impressed by how desperate he is to join our club and prove himself at Premier League level."
