Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of Ollie Turton, with the right-back joining on an initial two-year deal.
✅ Ollie Turton has agreed to become our fourth signing of the 2021 summer transfer window!
👏 Welcome to #htafc, Ollie!

The 28-year-old was an important player for Blackpool as they won promotion to the Championship, although he did score an early own goal in the play-off final win over Lincoln City last week.
Turton has caught the eye with his defensive displays, along with his ability on the ball, and the Terriers have announced his arrival, with the player set to join as a free agent when his deal expires later this month.
Does the John Smith’s Stadium have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?
With the former Crewe man capable of playing in a back three or in midfield if required, Turton will provide Carlos Corberan with versatility over the course of a gruelling season.
It’s fair to say that news of the signing has gone down well with the Huddersfield support, as they see this as a smart addition. Here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
