Huddersfield Town has signed midfielder Juninho Bacuna from Groningen for an undisclosed fee.

Bacuna has joined Huddersfield on a three-year deal with the option for a further year. The midfielder, who is the brother of Reading midfielder Leandro Bacuna, came through the youth ranks at FC Groningen, where he has made 83 appearances since making his debut at the age of 17.

He has made nearly a century of appearances for Groningen, scoring four goals, and has also played for Netherlands at Under-21 level.

"I'm delighted that we've been able to bring Juninho in, especially before we report back as it allows him to have a full pre-season with the team," head coach David Wagner told Huddersfield's official website.

"He's a young, hungry player that has already played a lot of football for someone of his age and even if he's still very young, he strengthens our options in this position after we lost Dean Whitehead to retirement at the end of last season.
