Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of Adama Diakhaby from Monaco on a three-year deal.

The 22-year-old attacker joins the Terriers for an undisclosed fee, putting pen to paper on a contract that will keep him at the John Smith's Stadium until 2021.

Huddersfield have the option to extend that deal by a further year on top of that, and the France Under-21 international will now join up with his new teammates at their pre-season training camp in Germany.

"I'm very happy to be able to welcome Adama to Huddersfield Town today. He is a very hungry young footballer with a strong desire to succeed in England, which is fantastic for our club," manager David Wagner told Huddersfield's official website.

"Obviously he is still learning and improving at 22 years old, but he already has many of the qualities that we look for in our attacking players. He's a direct player who is comfortable with the ball at his feet and with genuine pace, which suits our style perfectly.

"We're really looking forward to working with him on the training pitch and seeing him pull on our blue and white shirt in games, as I'm sure our fans are too."

Diakhaby, who can play on either wing or in central attacking midfield, featured in the Champions League for Monaco last season and scored two goals in 27 appearances for the club across all competitions.
