Huddersfield are set to sign Swansea defender Jazz Richards on a three-month emergency loan deal.

The Welshman, who can play as a full-back or midfielder, will fill the void created by right-back Jack Hunt, who left to join Crystal Palace on transfer deadline day.

The 22-year-old has made 29 league appearances for the Swans since making his debut in 2009 but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by this campaign.

And Terriers boss Mark Robins is thrilled to have Richards at the club.

"With Jack Hunt's departure and the recent injury that Calum Woods has suffered, we were looking to increase our options in that area of the pitch and Jazz is exactly the type of player we have here at the club," he told Town's official website.

"He is young but has good experience of the Championship with Swansea City and last season's loan at Crystal Palace and now he is hungry for more.

"Swansea play good passing football and he fits the mould when it comes to playing in our side. He has a lot of quality both technically and physically and we're delighted to have him at the club."
