Terriers bring in Arismendi

Huddersfield Town manager Simon Grayson has strengthened his midfield options with the loan addition of Stoke City's Diego Arismendi.
The Uruguayan, who cost Stoke £2.6million in 2009, has featured in three Europa League games for the Potters this term.
The 24-year-old former Nacional man has experience of lower league football having spent time on loan with Brighton and Barnsley.
Town are currently chasing the likes of Sheffield United and Wednesday for an automatic promotion place in League One and Grayson believes Arismendi will be a 'good' addition.


"Diego has good experience and pedigree having played in the Championship with Barnsley and in the Europa League for Stoke this season," Grayson told Huddersfield's official website.
"He is a very good addition to the squad and will add to the quality that we already have here. He is in the travelling squad that is heading to Colchester and is available for selection."
Stoke boss Tony Pulis knows the importance of games for Arismendi and he is looking forward to gauging his progress during his spell with the West Yorkshire club.
"It's important now that Diego gets the chance to play games and we have been looking for an opportunity like this for him to show how far he has progressed," Pulis told the club's official website.
