- Terence Kongolo joins Huddersfield Town on loan
- Defender joins from AS Monaco FC until 30 June 2018
- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner
Huddersfield Town has today completed the signing of Netherlands international Terence Kongolo on loan from Ligue 1 Champions AS Monaco FC.
The 23 year-old centre back joins the Terriers until 30 June 2018 and will wear the number five shirt during his time at the Club.
Standing a 6’ 2” tall, Terence has made over a century of appearances in the top flight of Dutch football with Feyenoord, winning the Eredivisie in 2017, and represented his country at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“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.”
