Josh Ruffels, an Oxford defender, has joined Huddersfield Town.

Huddersfield has signed defender Josh Ruffels on a two-year deal from Oxford.

Following Oxford’s Sky Bet League One play-off semi-final defeat to Blackpool last month, Ruffels rejected down a new contract offer and will join the Terriers on July 1.

“The 27-year-old left-back will pen-to-paper on a two-year deal, with the club having the option of a further year’s extension,” Huddersfield wrote on their official website.

Ruffels appeared in 48 games for Oxford last season, scoring seven goals and assisting on six occasions.

After joining the club from Coventry in 2013, he played in over 300 games for the U’s.

“He is an offensive left-back who has also played in the centre of the pitch, which shows a fair level of versatility, which will help the team,” added Terriers head coach Carlos Corberan.

“Over the last several years, he has played a lot of minutes and a lot of games in a succession, which shows he is physically able to adjust to the Championship, so we are excited to work with him.”
