Tommy Elphick: Huddersfield Town sign former Aston Villa defender
Relegated Premier League side Huddersfield Town have signed centre-back Tommy Elphick on a two-year deal following his release by Aston Villa.
The 31-year-old made 14 appearances for Villa last season as they gained promotion to the top flight.
Elphick joined Villa from Bournemouth for £3m in 2016, spending part of last term on loan at Championship side Hull.
"Tommy adds a lot of knowledge about the Championship to our squad," said Huddersfield head coach Jan Siewert.
"There was a lot of interest in Tommy from several other clubs, which is totally understandable. It is rare that a player of his quality is available as a free agent."
The Terriers have the option of extending Elphick's contract by a further year.
