Newly promoted Premier League club Huddersfield have finalized the signing of Montpellier and Benin striker Steve Mounie for a reported record fee of €13 million.

Mounie had a solid Ligue 1 campaign with Montpellier last season after scoring 14 goals and delivering three assists in 35 matches last season.

“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,” Huddersfield Town coach David Wagner told the club’s website.

“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.”
