Huddersfield have completed the signing of left-back Scott Malone from Fulham.
Malone becomes Huddersfield's fifth signing in just over 24 hours and the deal could be worth up to £5m, according to Sky sources.
The defender follows the record transfer of Montpellier striker Steve Mounie on Wednesday morning.
Malone, who has signed a three-year deal, joined Fulham from Cardiff City last summer and was instrumental in the west London club's play-off push.
Huddersfield head coach David Wagner said: "I'm excited to welcome Scott to Huddersfield Town. Our fans will have seen in our games against Fulham last season what a good player he is and I know his abilities will suit our style of play very well.
"Scott is a good physical presence and is a very capable defender, plus he adds a lot going forward. He shows good football intelligence to time his forward runs and can setup goals for teammates and scoring them himself."
Wagner has stepped up recruitment in the last few days with Kasey Palmer (loan), Tom Ince and Danny Williams all joining on Tuesday.
Huddersfield begin preparations for their debut season in the Premier League with a friendly at Accrington Stanley on Wednesday July 12.
