Huddersfield chief Bromby delighted with Niasse arrival

Huddersfield chief Leigh Bromby has welcomed their deal for Oumar Niasse.

The former Everton striker has joined the Terriers as a free agent.

Bromby said, "We think Oumar is a player who can help us.

"A big part of our recruitment process focuses on the character of the players we're bringing in and we've spoken with Oumar and his representatives over a fair period of time. We've had very positive conversations throughout and it's clear he will be a good fit within our group.

"He's had plenty of offers since leaving Everton, but he was keen to stay in England and, ideally, in the north so he is close to his family. His pedigree speaks for itself, having played in top divisions, in European competitions and commanded huge transfer fees. However, his character is just as impressive. He's a very positive guy and is determined to show everyone what he is capable of."
