Huddersfield Town sign Norwich striker James Vaughan on loan

Huddersfield Town have signed Norwich striker James Vaughan on a season-long loan deal.

Vaughan, 24, joined the Canaries from Everton last summer but injury restricted him to five appearances.

"He is a different type of striker to the ones we currently have and crucially he has plenty of pace," boss Simon Grayson told the club website.

"He is a determined character with a high work-rate and he is a player with something to prove."

Grayson added: "He has had some problems with injuries in the past but he has had a good pre-season behind him and comes to us fully fit.

"We have agreed a sensible deal with Norwich to protect us and I look forward to working with James over the coming months."

The Birmingham-born striker became the Premier League's youngest goalscorer when he scored on his Everton debut, aged 16 years and 271 days, in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at Goodison Park in April 2005.

His time with the Toffees was disrupted by injury and he struggled to establish a first team place, leading to loan spells with Derby, Leicester and Palace before joining Norwich permanently.
