Huddesfield sign Charlton striker Karlan Grant

Ahearne-Grant has scored 14 goals for Charlton this season

Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of Charlton striker Karlan Grant.

Grant has joined the Terriers for an undisclosed fee and has penned a deal until 2022, with Huddersfield retaining an option to extend his stay by a further year.

The 21-year-old forward, who scored 14 goals for Charlton this term, has been handed the number 16 shirt and is available for Huddersfield's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Huddersfield head coach Jan Siewert said: "As I do, this club believes in talented young players and Karlan certainly fits that description. He's player I'm delighted to have the chance to work with.

"Our recruitment team has put a lot of work into bringing Karlan here. Importantly, he is a natural goal-scorer. He has that knack of knowing which movement to make and finishing chances.

"He offers us something different to our current options in that he always tries to play on the shoulder of the final defender, looking to run in behind. He's an athletic, pacey player and will really fit our playing style.
