Huddersfield have completed the signing of Alex Pritchard from Norwich, the Premier League club have announced.

The Terriers agreed personal terms with Pritchard after an improved bid for the 24-year-old had been accepted earlier in the week.

The two clubs agreed an initial £12m fee, rising by another £2m dependent on bonuses, as revealed by Sportsmail earlier this week.

Pritchard could make his Terriers debut in Saturday's home Premier League game against West Ham.

'Huddersfield Town has today completed the permanent transfer of Alex Pritchard from Sky Bet Championship side Norwich City,' read a club statement.

Head coach David Wagner said: 'I'm very happy to be able to welcome Alex to Huddersfield Town.

'He is exactly the type of player that we like to work with at this club. Alex is a young British player who arrives as one of the top performers in the Sky Bet Championship and with a desire to prove himself in the Premier League.

'Now we will work hard with him to give him every possibility of being a success for us in the top division.

Pritchard moved to Carrow Road from Tottenham for £8m in August 2016 and scored eight goals in 43 games, but saw his start to this season blighted by injury.
