Popular defender completes permanent return to Town
- Terence Kongolo joins Town for a record fee
- Dutchman signs a four-year contract with the Terriers
- Defender reveals the new 2018/19 Umbro home kit
Huddersfield Town is delighted to confirm that Terence Kongolo has today completed a permanent transfer to the Club from AS Monaco FC!
The 24-year-old was an instant hit with Town fans during his loan spell in the final five months of Town’s inaugural Premier League season, establishing himself as a real fans’ favourite with some exceptional defending at left back and on the left side of a back three in 17 impressive appearances.
That form earned Terence a recall to the Netherlands senior side, for who he has recently earned his fourth cap.
Now he has put pen-to-paper on a four-year contract at Huddersfield Town, joining from the French Ligue 1 side for a club record fee that will remain undisclosed.
Terence is pictured above in the new 2018/19 Umbro home kit, which will be available to pre-order soon! Click HERE for more information on Town’s striking new-look blue and white striped shirt, shorts and socks.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“I’m so happy that we’ve brought Terence back as a permanent Huddersfield Town player ahead of the 2018/19 Premier League season. His signing is a big statement for this Club.
“We knew he was a top, top player when we brought him in on loan in January; you don’t play for the Netherlands in a World Cup and win the Dutch league with Feyenoord otherwise. However, his performances in our shirt exceeded our expectations.
“Terence gives us a fantastic option at centre back and at left back and the way that he defends on the front foot is perfect for our style. He is also at the start of his career as a 24-year-old and it’s exciting for us to think he can still get better and better from the high level he’s already at.
“We also know what a top, top character he is. He is a perfect fit for our changing room, as everyone has seen he has ‘Terrier Spirit’ in his DNA. This is exactly what we need in the players that we bring to this Club.
“I also know how popular he is with our supporters, so I’m sure this is a great day for them all ahead of the World Cup too!”
