Huddersfield Town have today confirmed that midfielder Jacob Butterfield has joined Derby County with sources suggesting he was sold to the Rams for around 4.5million.Butterfield joins Derby County

It has been announced as an undisclosed fee with Town saying that the fee they have received is only surpassed by the sale of Jordan Rhodes to Blackburn Rovers for £8m in August 2012.

Butterfield joined the Terriers last summer from Middlesbrough at the same time Adam Clayton moved the other way.

He went on to make 50 appearances for Town, scoring seven goals, and won the club's Player of the Year award last season after producing some impressive displays.

Both manager Chris Powell and chairman Dean Hoyle have told the club's official website that Butterfield had made it clear he wanted to leave Huddersfield Town and a fee was eventually agreed with Derby on Monday after the Rams had three previous bids rejected.

The Bradford-born player has now signed a four-year deal with Paul Clement's side who are in 19th place in the Championship with four points from their first five matches.

Despite only being at the club for just year, Butterfield was a superb player for Town and we wish him all the best at Derby County.
