Huddersfield Town sign Nathan Eccleston from Liverpool

Huddersfield have signed Liverpool striker Nathan Eccleston on loan and brought in Australia international defender Dean Herffernan.

Eccleston, 19, will be with the Terriers until 2 March and goes straight into the squad to face Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Left-back Heffernan, 29, has agreed a move until the end of the season from A League side Central Coast Mariners.

His deal is subject to clearance from the Football Association.

England youth international Eccleston signed a new deal with Liverpool earlier this season and made his Premier League debut as a substitute against Fulham in October.

Terriers boss Lee Clark said: "He has real pace and can play anywhere across the front line, whether that is as a striker or on either wing. He is very highly thought of at Liverpool."

Heffernan was capped twice by his country during last year's Asian Cup qualifiers.

He had a season-long loan with German Bundesliga side Nuremberg during the 2006-7 campaign.
