The Terriers have been on the lookout for a new stopper to compete with Ryan Schofield as a priority, and they had been linked with Nicholls in recent weeks.
And, the club announced his arrival on their official site, with the 28-year-old agreeing a deal until 2023, although that could be extended by 12 months if the Yorkshire outfit wish.
It’s fair to say that Nicholls’ arrival prompted a mixed response from the Huddersfield fans, with some glad to see the club have addressed a problem position.
Does the John Smith’s Stadium have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?
However, others wanted a more proven keeper to arrive, because whilst Nicholls has experience, most of his appearances in his career have come in the lower leagues, and he was backup for MK Dons in the campaign that has just finished.
Here we look at some of the comments to the transfer news…
Wish him all the best. My slight worry is the team who picked him, picked the fleetwood Canadian fella and that Portuguese pepperoni stick from Man Utd. Both woeful.

Please play him as number 1 until Schofield learns how to command his box and catch crosses. Cheers. 👍🏼

Great shot stopper and no doubt a few clubs will have been interested. Good signing, keep them coming

There isn't going to be money thrown around by anyone this summer, everyone is skint, so frees are hugely expected.

No thrills signing but to be fair he ticks the boxes, should be able to give Schofield some competition while also not really hampering Ryan’s development.
