Former Coventry City loanee Jon Stead has re-joined Huddersfield Town.

Stead started his career at Huddersfield before leaving for Blackburn Rovers in 2004. As well as playing for City on loan, he played for Sunderland, Derby, Sheffield United, Ipswich before joining Bristol City.

The 30 year old has signed a two year deal at Huddersfield with the option of a third year and former City manager Mark Robins told the BBC about signing Stead for the Terriers; “  "Jon's arrival is a step forward for the club.

 "We need intelligence, we need movement, we need pace and we need presence as well. Jon can certainly link the play; he has presence and experience at this level.

 "I have spoken to him about goals; he has always scored consistently but I believe that he can score more than he has done.

 "He's a very different player to the one that left this club back in 2004 and he was very popular with the supporters at Bristol City, he was their Player of the Year in 2012. He fits very well as a number nine in the system we want to play."
