Former Clarets manager, Stan Ternent has been given permission by Derby to join League One side Huddersfield as their new manager.

Ternent now 61 joined the Rams as assistant manager five months ago helping Paul Jewell with the hopeless task of keeping Derby in the Premier League.

However he will now take over from Andy Ritchie at the Galpharm Stadium.

Derby chairman of football Adam Pearson said:

“We have given him permission to join Huddersfield as their manager.

“We have not sought any compensation from Huddersfield.

“I would like to thank Stan Ternent for the hard work he has put in for Derby and the support he has given Paul Jewell.”

Former Terrier with Clarets connections, Ronnie Jepson is also set to join Huddersfield as his assistant bringing back the situation they both enjoyed at Gillingham.
