Published Add your comment

Huddersfield have completed the signing of goalkeeper Ian Bennett following his release from Sheffield United.

Bennett, 38, who has joined on a free transfer, is the second player to arrive from Bramall Lane this summer following the arrival of defender Gary Naysmith.

Town manager Lee Clark told the club's official website: "I knew I would need to bring another goalkeeper in this summer and Ian fits the criteria for the position precisely."

He added: "I wanted someone to provide Alex Smithies with genuine competition for the position in the starting XI and Ian will definitely do that, but he also has bags of experience, knowledge and know-how that our young goalkeepers will benefit from massively each day in training."

Bennett, whose career spans 20 years, has top-flight experience with Birmingham and Sheffield United and is other previous clubs include QPR, Newcastle, Peterborough, Coventry and Leeds.
