'If It's Football, It's Vital'

James Vaughan Signs For Huddersfield

James Vaughan has, this evening, signed a 3 year deal with Huddersfield, the club he spent last year with on loan.

Vaughan made a significant contribution to the Terriers last season, scoring 14 times in 37 appearances and picking up their Player of the Year award. It was no surprise when ex-canary Mark Robins moved to make the 24 year old striker his #1 target during the off-season.

Norwich City confirmed the signing this evening at approx 7pm but fell short of detailing the price tag, as has become customary for dealings involving the Canaries.

Sky Sports quoted Robins as saying "James' arrival is a significant signing for the club and one that I know our supporters will be very pleased with after his excellent debut season in a Huddersfield Town shirt.

"Equally, I'm delighted that we have secured his services. The exciting thing is I believe there is even more to come from James.

"He is only 24 and although he already has excellent qualities in terms of strength, pace, work rate and much more, I believe he will have learned from the games he played last season and we will benefit from his knowledge and understanding of the style of football we want to play here."

Vaughan probably feels he never got the chance to show what he can do in yellow and green and personally I am disappointed to see him leave. His form last year surely deserved a run in the side. But Hughton obviously feels that either the current strike force is enough to deliver the goods next season or knows that the irons in the transfer fire will deliver what he needs.

With rumours surrounding Holt's possible departure to Wigan not disappearing I would surmise that the latter is the case. Toivonen seems to have gone cold on the idea of joining up with Wolfswinkel in East Anglia, so I would hazard a guess that Hooper is back as our #1 target.

Either way Vital Norwich wishes Vaughan all the best at Huddersfield. Give Robins a hug from us please mate - I'll never forget the impact he made in his first game for the club. I was there as we came from 2-0 down, with just 21 minutes to go, to beat Arsenal 4-2 back in 1992.

It's true that he wasn't given a chance but 14 goals in 37 is hardly awesome in the Championship. But they love him at Huddersfield so good luck to him and I hope his injury troubles are behind him. All the best Vaughany...

I never saw him play for us , so I dont know if we are going to miss him . He has gone to a good club with a modern stadium in a town I am very fond of !
