Terriers Snap Up Netherlands International

Terence Kongolo

Terence Kongolo will wear the number five shirt.

Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of Netherlands international Terence Kongolo.

He arrives 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.

Huddersfield Town head 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 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 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.”
