Huddersfield Town have confirmed the signing of Tom Ince from Derby on an initial three-year deal.
Sky Sports News HQ understands the deal for the 25-year-old winger could be worth up to around £10m and the club have the option of extending his contract for a further season.
Ince, son of former Manchester United and Liverpool midfielder Paul, joined Derby for £4.75m in 2015 and scored 27 goals in 97 appearances for the Rams.
"Everybody in England knows that Tom has high-quality; he has been one of the best players in the Sky Bet Championship for many years now," Terriers boss David Wagner told Huddersfield's official website.
"He scores goals, creates them for others and is always a threat when he's on the pitch, so I'm very happy to welcome him to the club today.
"To have played over 250 games at just 25 years old is not normal; it's great experience for a player who still has lots of space to improve."I have spoken to Tom and he has a massive desire to come to Huddersfield Town and play in the Premier League. He has had a taste of the division for two short spells and he is desperate to show everyone that he belongs in the top division. I think he can be a big player for us."
Sky sources also understand that the signing of Danny Williams could be announced within the next 24 hours as Wagner prepares for life in the Premier League.
USA international Williams is a free agent after his contract with Sky Bet Championship side Reading expired last week.
Striker Steve Mounie's move from Montpellier is also close to being finalised but it is understood that confirmation on that deal is unlikely to come on Tuesday.
Huddersfield have already signed striker Laurent Depoitre from Porto and secured Aaron Mooy, who was on loan from Manchester City last season, on a permanent deal this summer.
