Huddersfield Town has today completed the club record signing of Beninese international striker Steve Mounié from Montpellier.
The exciting 22 year-old forward joins Town for an undisclosed club record fee.
Standing at 6’ 3” tall, the powerful attacker has signed a four-year contract running until the summer of 2021.
Mounié arrives at Town as a hot property, having notched 14 goals in 32 starts in his first full season in the French top division..
No work permit is required for Steve, who has scored once in seven caps for Benin, due to his dual French nationality.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“I’m delighted that we could sign Steve ahead of the start of pre-season training.
“He has a very exciting combination of attributes that makes his a very attractive proposition as a young striker.
“He has real physical attributes that should be perfect for the Premier League, plus we have already seen his talents as a football in his remarkable season in France.
“We have met and I know he is a great character. For a man of his young age, he already has great experience both in life and as a footballer from his time in France, playing in a high-quality Ligue 1.
“At just 22 years old, he is only going to improve too. Given what he is already capable of, that is very exciting.”
