Official | Monaco send Terence Kongolo on loan to Huddersfield Town

Premier League side Huddersfield have completed the signing of Monaco full-back Terence Kongolo, who only joined the Ligue 1 club in the summer.

The loan deal will see the Dutchman stay at The Terriers until June 30th 2018, and he will wear the number five shirt. The former Feyenoord man has represented Holland at the 2014 World Cup finals under Louis Van Gaal, and won the Eredivisie in 2017 with Feyenoord.

“Terence is a top player who we’ve followed from his time at Feyenoord. His big summer move to Monaco put him out of our reach at the time, but we’re delighted we can bring him on loan now,” said Huddersfield boss David Wagner.

“He is a high-quality young centre back and will provide us with a great option for the rest of the Premier League season. With Michael Hefele and Gorenc Stankovic returning from long-term injuries, it was important to have this. Terence has qualities that will really suit our style of play. He’s athletic and mobile and plays on the front foot in the way he defends and uses the ball. I’m excited to work with him during the course of the season.”
