Huddersfield land Bournemouth's Anton Robinson

Anton Robinson

Robinson scored five times for Bournemouth last season

Huddersfield have signed Bournemouth midfielder Anton Robinson on a three-year deal, for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old made 117 appearances for the Cherries following his move from Weymouth in February 2009  .

He played 51 times last season as Bournemouth reached the League One play-off semi-finals, where they were beaten by Lee Clark's Terriers. 

"Anton is a top quality performer with proven pedigree at League One level," Clark told the club website  .

"I think his ability was plain for all to see in our four clashes with Bournemouth last season and his acquisition is a real coup for the club."

Robinson, who had a year remaining on his Cherries contract, started his career in the Millwall academy, but failed to make a first-team appearance and proceeded to ply his trade in the non-league.

Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle added: "Lee identified Anton as an important target and we are delighted that this transfer has come to fruition after a lot of hard work from everyone at the club.

"Bournemouth were understandably reluctant to let Anton leave, but we persisted."
