Huddersfield sign Terence Kongolo on loan from Monaco

Huddersfield have completed the signing of Netherlands international Terence Kongolo on loan from Ligue 1 side Monaco.

Kongolo, 23, will join until July 2018, having joined Monaco in the summer for €15 million. He represented his country at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, while the defender won the Eredivisie with Feyenoord in 2017.

Huddersfield coach David Wagner told the club's official website: "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 in on loan now.

"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 Jon Gorenc Stanković 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 he 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."
