Striker to arrive from Derby on loan

Striker Theo Robinson has re-signed for Huddersfield Town on an emergency loan from Derby County for the remainder of the 2012/13 season.
The Birmingham-born 24 year-old has netted eight goals in just 13 starts for the npower Championship side this season, with seven of those goals coming when he has started games.
Theo is returning to the Terriers, having netted 16 goals in just 19 starts and 26 substitute appearances for the Club in npower League 1 between July 2009 and January 2011 before moving to npower Championship side Millwall.
Since departing ‘The Yorkshire Club’, Robinson has also earned his first cap for Jamaica.

Theo's loan includes a recall clause after the first 28 days of the agreement have passed.
Mark Robins commented on his first signing as Huddersfield Town Manager:
“Theo gives us another dimension in our attacking options, particularly with Jermaine Beckford on the sidelines at the minute; his availability comes at a good time for us.
“He has a proven goal threat at Championship level, as you can see from his record. I’ve seen him play for Derby this season and he’s played well for them, scoring a few when used as a starter and also off the bench. He has the ability to score a goal.
“Our supporters will be very familiar with him and know that he is pacey, direct and works hard. I’m looking forward to having him in the building tomorrow and working with him.”
