The Terriers have struggled in the Championship this season, but will be boosted by the news of Chris Löwe's impending arrival.

Huddersfield Town have announced via their official club website that they have agreed a deal to sign Kaiserslautern's German defender - Chris Löwe on a free transfer.

An official club statement on htafc.com read:

"Huddersfield Town can confirm that Chris Löwe will join the club from 2. Bundesliga side 1. FC Kaiserslautern as a free agent on 1 July 2016. Löwe, a 26 year-old left back, has put pen to paper on a three year contact with the Terriers."

Huddersfield boss - David Wagner, is familiar with Löwe from his time at Dortmund, telling the club's official website that he is looking forward to working with the German:

“I know Chris from our time together at Dortmund; he is a player I like a lot. Everyone knows him as a player in Germany, as he is often voted as the best left back in in the 2. Bundesliga."

Fans of the West Yorkshire club will welcome the signing of the left-back, after their team have leaked 57 goals in 40 Championship games this term.

The Terrier's new signing made 95 appearances for Kaiserslautern, scoring four goals. 

He played under Jürgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund and was part of their Bundesliga winning side in 2012.

Next up for Huddersfield in the Championship, is a visit from high-flying Hull City, where a win would ease relegation fears at The John Smith Stadium.
