Struggling Championship side Huddersfield Town have signed former Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo on a deal until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old French forward has signed for the Terriers as a free agent having departed Ligue 1 side Toulouse at the end of the last campaign.

Sanogo is familiar with the English game having spent four years with Arsenal after signing in the summer of 2013.

The forward made only 11 appearances for the Gunners without scoring, but did feature in the Champions League. He was loaned out to Crystal Palace, Ajax, Jong Ajax and then Charlton before signing for Toulouse in 2017.

Sanogo bagged 12 goals in 63 appearances for the French side and has featured for France at youth level.

Huddersfield Town's Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented on the move, saying: "We're happy to welcome Yaya to the Club this week.

"It's great that he has experience of playing in England, including the Championship, as it should allow him to hit the ground running.

"He's been at some big clubs in his career and comes having most recently played in a top European league. We were looking for a player who can have a real impact for us this season and we believe he fits the bill."

Huddersfield currently occupy 19th place in the Championship and have picked up just one win in their last 11 matches.

The Terriers are next in action at Preston on Saturday and are 3.20 to win. Preston are 2.30 and the draw is at 3.30.
