Jack Hunt: Joins Palace on a long term deal

The 22-year-old arrives for an undisclosed fee and has signed a four-year contract with the Premier League new boys.

The Eagles' official website said: "Crystal Palace are pleased to confirm the signing of defender Jack Hunt from Huddersfield Town."

Hunt was a mainstay of the Huddersfield side last season - making 44 appearances as the Yorkshire club maintained their Championship status on the last day of the campaign.

Palace secured their first victory of the campaign on Saturday - Dwight Gayle's late penalty earning them a 3-1 win over Sunderland at a jubilant Sehurst Park.

Speaking on his move to Selhurst Park, Hunt said: "I'd like to thank the chairman Dean Hoyle and the board of directors for everything during my time at the club."

He added on the club's official website: "If it wasn't for them I would have probably moved on after my loans away, but they showed incredible faith and trust in me and have played a massive part in starting my career.

"I would also like to thank all Huddersfield Town fans. As a young player, they really helped me settle into the team - right from my full debut at Arsenal and ever since.

"I've been at the club for a very long time and it will always hold a special place in my heart, but now I have an exciting new challenge to go and play Premier League football against some of the world's best players.

"I've made a lot of friends at Huddersfield Town in terms of players and coaches and I would like to thank them all too.

"With the chairman, Nigel Clibbens, Ross Wilson and the manager Mark Robins in charge, I believe the club's future is very bright."
