Huddersfield Town have signed Leeds United centre-back Alex Bruce on loan until 2 January.

Bruce, who has been at Birmingham, Oldham, Sheffield Wednesday, Tranmere, Ipswich and Leicester, has not played a first-team game since February.

The 27-year-old has been capped by the Republic of Ireland but is now available for Northern Ireland.

"We think he'll add something a little different," Terriers boss Lee Clark told the club website.external-link
