Huddersfield have signed free agent and former Aston Villa defender Tommy Elphick on a two-year deal.
The central defender, who won the Championship with Bournemouth as their captain in 2015, was available for a free after his Villa contract expired this summer.
The defender joined Villa for £3m in 2016 and went on to feature 41 times for the newly-promoted Premier League club.
He was sent out on loan to Reading for the second half of the 2017/18 season in search of more game time but made just four appearances for the Royals.
Elphick was also loaned out to Hull City at the start of the 2018/19 campaign, but later recalled by Dean Smith in December last year; he played 18 games for the Tigers, scoring one goal.
The 31-year-old becomes Jan Siewert's first summer signing following the Terriers' relegation to the Championship.
Jonas Lossl joined Everton on a free transfer and will officially join the Toffees after the German's Huddersfield contract expires on July 1.
