Former Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has officially completed a move to Championship side Huddersfield Town for the remainder of the season. The deal, subject to international clearance, will excite Huddersfield fans who have been starved of goals thus far.
Having departed Toulouse at the end of last season, Sanogo will be hoping for a fresh start with the Terriers and another opportunity to prove his worth in English football.

Leigh Bromby: ‘He’s a Positive Person’
Speaking to the club’s website following the move, head of football operations Leigh Bromby said: “We’re happy to welcome Yaya to the Club this week.
“It’s great that he has experience of playing in England, including the Championship, as it should allow him to hit the ground running. It was also clear from our discussions with him that he has excellent command of the language, and that he’s a positive person.
“He’s been at some big clubs in his career and comes having most recently played in a top European league. We were looking for a player who can have a real impact for us this season and we believe he fits the bill.”
Head Coach Carlos Corberán added:
“Yaya is a player who has a background in English football, something that can make his adaptation to the Championship easier.
“Physically he has a different profile to the strikers we already have in attack and it can help to increase the offensive versatility of the team.
“He has been training with a professional team in France from September until he made the journey to England, which means he should be in a better physical condition. He will still need a little time, and we will work with him to make him ready to help the team in the last part of the season.”
