The Denmark international has signed a three-year deal at the Premier League new boys, with his transfer fee reportedly in the region of £3.5 million.

He becomes the Terriers's ninth signing of the summer, with David Wagner now having spent in the region of £40m since guiding the West Yorkshire outfit to the top-flight last season.

Jorgensen arrives with experience of playing in the Champions League for Copenhagen while he also spent time at PSV Eindhoven.

The 27-year-old has won seven caps for his country since making his debut in 2008, and Wagner has expressed his delight at adding yet another new face to his squad.

"Matthias is another very good signing for our club as we prepare for our first Premier League season," he told the club's official website.

“He is a very complete defender with great experience of being successful in every league he has played in, which served us well with the signings we made last season too.

“His athleticism and football intelligence will be big assets in the Premier League, for sure, and he is a super professional character, which will fit in with our current group of players very well.

"This deal makes total sense for us because Jon [Stanković] is out of action until Christmas."
