HUDDERSFIELD TOWN have signed ex-Leeds United defender Lee Peltier on a three-year deal – after his contract was terminated by the Whites by mutual consent.
Peltier, who had a year left on his United deal, reached agreement to leave Leeds yesterday, with Town beating off competition from several clubs, including Nottingham Forest, to sign him.
Town manager Mark Robins had been keen on bringing in some experienced defenders to bolster his squad, with old boy Peltier fitting the bill perfectly.
No fee is thought to be involved, with Peltier effectively a free agent after reaching an agreement to leave Leeds.
Meanwhile, the winding-up petition issued against United by Sport Capital has been dismissed by the high court and the club’s bank account is now set to be unfrozen.
Doncaster striker Chris Brown has signed for Blackburn on a two-year deal, while Barnsley have signed Plymouth Argyle midfelder Conor Hourihane for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-year deal.
