Striker loaned to Huddersfield Town on a season-long deal

NORWICH City have agreed a deal for striker James Vaughan to join Championship side Huddersfield Town on loan until the end of the season.

The former-England Under-21 forward joined the Canaries from Everton in May 2011 for an undisclosed fee, but injury restricted him to just one start and four substitute appearances in the league during his first season at Carrow Road.

Vaughan will link up with Terriers manager Simon Grayson’s at the John Smith’s stadium, whose side gained promotion from League One via the play-offs last season, beating Sheffield United 8-7 in a dramatic penalty shootout at Wembley in May after a 0-0 draw.

On April 10, 2005, Vaughan scored on his Barclays Premier League debut for Everton against Crystal Palace, making him the youngster Premier League goalscorer of all-time at the age of 16 years and 271 days.

The 24-year-old subsequently had loan spells at Derby County, Leicester City, and two separate spells with Crystal Palace before his move to Norwich.
