The 28-year-old defender has signed a three-year deal with the Club and joins from English Premier League side AFC Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.
Elphick becomes manager Roberto Di Matteo’s first signing and the first player purchased since owner Dr Tony Xia bought the Club.
Manager Roberto Di Matteo said: “I'm really pleased to bring Tommy to the football Club.
“He is a fantastic player and also a fantastic character which is very important.
"He knows what is required to win promotion to the Premier League from the Championship and that experience will be invaluable.”
