The Middlesbrough-born midfielder will join on a three-year contract if he passes a medical.

Huddersfield will have the option for a fourth year as part of the deal for Hogg, who has Premier League experience with Aston Villa and was part of the Watford side beaten in last season's Championship play-off final.

Town boss Mark Robins told the club website: "Jonathan's arrival is an important one and we're delighted we've been able to bring him in.

"Jonathan is a northern lad and when we learned he was looking to move nearer home, we acted very quickly to secure his signature. I know Watford were very reluctant to see him leave after he was so key to them last year.

"He is a different kind of midfield player to the ones we have at the club. We have a lot of talented ball players here, but Jonathan has an abundance of energy and can do everything you want from an all-round midfield player."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
