Huddersfield set to sign Mounie from Montpellier

Montpellier (France) (AFP) – Montpellier forward Steve Mounie is expected to sign for newly-promoted Premier League club Huddersfield Town this week, according to a source close to the French club.

The 22-year-old Benin international, who scored 14 goals in Ligue 1 last season, will have a medical before the two clubs officially confirm the move for a reported 13 million euros ($14.5m, £11.5m).

It would be a club-record sale for Montpellier, beating the 12 million euros they received from Arsenal for Olivier Giroud in 2012, a sum that Marseille also paid them a year ago for midfielder Morgan Sanson.

Three-time English champions Huddersfield will play in the top flight for the first time since 1972, after beating Reading in the Championship play-off final to win promotion last month.
