Terriers capture Cardiff defender Gerrard

Anthony Gerrard has completed a move from Cardiff City to Huddersfield Town for £350,000 on a three-year contract.

The 26-year-old centre back joined the Red Dragons, formerly known as the Bluebirds back in 2009 from Walsall.

Gerrard, the cousin of Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard, made 74 appearances for the Welsh club, finding the net four times.

He also had a loan spell at Hull City during the 2010-11 Championship campaign.

The defender's last appearance for Malky Mackay's side came in the Carling Cup final against Liverpool, in which he missed a vital penalty and was seen at the end in tears, being comforted by his cousin Steven.

He was also left out of Cardiff's pre-season tour by boss Mackay.

The former Everton trainee is the latest of a string of signings by Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson, as he prepares the newly promoted Terriers for life in the Championship.

Gerrard (pictured) joins new signings Adam Clayton, Sean Scannell, Oliver Norwood, Paul Dixon, Joel Lynch and Keith Southern at the Galpharm Stadium.

Star striker Jordan Rhodes though is a transfer target for big clubs, with Blackburn Rovers recently confirming that they have made a bid for the Scottish international.

Huddersfield kick-off their Npower Championship season away to Cardiff City, live on Sky Sports on Friday, August 17.
