Speaking ahead of the signing of Brown at the club's fixtures breakfast, Winter said: "We have been on with about five (incoming arrivals). One (Elphick), we have done and we are hoping to do two (signings) before the end of the week and two into next week.

"We are looking at the loan window and getting creative with a couple of Premier League clubs as we did last time we are were in the Championship and that served us really well."

Meanwhile, head coach Jan Siewert has expressed delight at the signing of Brown.

He said: “I am very happy that we can welcome Reece to Huddersfield Town today.

“He is a very interesting player. He had a setback in his career when he left Birmingham City, but he showed great desire to go on and have a real impact at Forest Green Rovers.

"Now wants to show that he can apply his qualities to be a success in the Sky Bet Championship.”
