BARNSLEY defender Adrian Moses has completed his move to Yorkshire First Division rivals Huddersfield Town for a fee reported to be around £300,000.

The 25-year-old defender has signed a three-year deal at the Alfred McAlpine Stadium and has become Lou Macari's first permanent signing since taking over as manager.

"Adie is exactly the sort of player we've been looking for. He is strong, quick and can play anywhere across the back four. He'll be a valuable addition to our squad," said Macari.

The deal has been completed despite claims of a late bid to keep Moses at Oakwell, when caretaker boss Eric Winstanley offered him a new contract.

Terriers director of football Trevor Cherry is delighted that Moses turned down the offer and chose to make a fresh start in West Yorkshire with Huddersfield.

"At the last minute Barnsley felt they wanted Adie to stay at the club but fortunately for Huddersfield Town he has come to sign for us," said Cherry.

"Adie is a versatile defender who has played in the Premiership and we are delighted to have him at the club.

"To bring in another player at this time will hopefully give us a boost just at the right time going into the busy Christmas period."

Moses could figure in a reserve game against Manchester United as Macari would like to team him up with skipper Chris Lucketti.
