Huddersfield have signed goalkeeper Ben Hamer from Leicester on a free transfer.
The 30-year-old will move to the John Smith's Stadium on a three-year deal on July 1 once his contract with Leicester ends.
Huddersfield also have the option to extend Hamer's contract by a further year.
Hamer made just nine appearances in all competitions for Leicester last season and will be hoping to challenge first-choice goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.
Head coach David Wagner told the club's website: "Ben's arrival adds more quality to our already strong goalkeeping department under Paul Clements.
"He is well known to Paul and also played with our First Team Coach Andrew Hughes at Charlton Athletic and both have given him glowing references as a goalkeeper and as a person, which is very important to us.
"I've spoken with Ben and he arrives here wanting to play Premier League football, which is great for us all. Jonas Lössl had a fantastic first season at the Club and this further competition will bring even more out of everyone, which is ideal for me and the team."
It's Huddersfield's first signing of the summer window as they prepare for their second season in the Premier League.
