Huddersfield Town are close to completing three new signings as they prepare for their first season in the Premier League. The Huddersfield Examiner reports that Danny Williams, Tom Ince and Steve Mounie are all set to join the Terriers in the next week.
Williams is a free agent having declined a contract offer from Reading, where he has spent the previous four seasons. The 28-year old midfielder was born in Germany, but qualifies to play for the USA and has won 22 caps.
Williams scored in the Wembley penalty shoot-out that Reading lost and Huddersfield won to be promoted to the Premier League and it seems that the American is ready to make the step up to the top flight with Huddersfield.
Steve Mounie is a promising 22-year-old striker from Benin, who has spent all of his career at Montpelier. After breaking through with four goals in 15 games in 2015-16, Mounie enjoyed a fine season last season scoring 15 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions.
He was a major factor in Montpelier staying in Ligue 1 as they finished three points clear of the relegation places.
Huddersfield were hoping to have the deal confirmed by now, but he was forced to return to France as the Montpelier owner Louis Nicollin died suddenly last Thursday afternoon.
Tom Ince is set to become the third new face arriving at Huddersfield. The son of Paul Ince has been around since bursting onto the scene with Blackpool, scoring in a play-off final defeat to West Ham in 2012.
After three seasons at Blackpool, Ince got his first taste of Premier League football when he was signed by Crystal Palace in 2013 and Hull in 2014. However he would only make seven appearances before being sent out on loan to Derby.
11 goals in 18 games in the second half of the 2014-15 season was enough to convince Derby to sign Ince permanently, spending just under £5m for his services.
He has gone on to make 82 appearances for the Rams, scoring 25 goals. Huddersfield are expecting to pay around £11m to bring him to Yorkshire and give him another chance in the top-flight.
