Huddersfield have completed the signing of Watford striker Theo Robinson for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract.

Robinson is Terriers manager Lee Clark's fifth summer signing and follows fellow forward Robbie Simpson and defenders Antony Kay, Lee Peltier and Peter Clarke to the Galpharm Stadium.

The 20-year-old told the club's official website: "When I heard of Huddersfield's interest it presented me with an opportunity that I had to take."

He added: "I want to play regularly and I believe that the club can progress to the Championship, which I want to be a part of.

"I believe I'm good enough to play in the Championship, but I never got the chance I thought I should have at Watford. Huddersfield is a big club with a genuine ambition to play in that division, which is where I want to be."

Robinson started his career as a trainee at Vicarage Road in 2005 and has had loan spells at Hereford and Southend, where he scored nine goals in 21 appearances last season.
