Huddersfield Town have confirmed they have secured the permanent signing of Socceroo Aaron Mooy on a three-year deal on Friday.
Widespread reports on Thursday hinted a deal was imminent, and just a day later the Terriers announced they had paid a club record £8 million, rising to £10 million, for Mooy.

The 26-year-old spent the 2016-17 Championship season with Huddersfield on loan from Manchester City, and in that time became a favourite of manager David Wagner and fans alike.
“Everybody who has watched our team in our promotion season knows how huge it is to have Aaron back at the club as we enter the Premier League for the first time. I’m sure our fans will be very happy to see him back,” Wagner told htafc.com.
“As I said many times last season, Aaron was right at the heart of our team. When he played well, we usually played well – and won!
“His performances for us understandably brought a lot of interest in him this summer, so it is a big statement that Aaron wants to return to us.
“I think he understands that playing so regularly for us at a good level improved his game too and now he has the chance to be a regular in the Premier League; something that is very exciting for every player.
“He is still a great age and has space to improve, which is exciting for us too.”
