Huddersfield pull off a transfer coup!
Huddersfield have not only held their own in the Premier League, but are also pulling off impressive moves in the transfer market.
In fairness, David Wagner has been doing this sort of thing in the transfer market ever since he took over at Huddersfield.
On Saturday, reports in France via RMC Sport confirm that Huddersfield have made an early January transfer window signing: Terence Kongolo from Monaco.
Terence Kongolo joins for the rest of the season
Monaco spent 15 million euros on Kongolo last season as a replacement for Benjamin Mendy, who signed for Manchester City.
Kongolo had impressed at Feyenoord, where he won the Dutch championship in 2016/2017, however the 23-year-old has struggled for playing time this season.
According to RMC Sport, Kongolo will join Huddersfield on loan until the end of the 2017/2018 season.
David Wagner credited with Terence Kongolo signing
Monaco clearly still rate Terence Kongolo as there is no option to buy for Huddersfield in the loan deal.
According to RMC Sport, Kongolo was convinced to sign for Huddersfield by their manager David Wagner.
Huddersfield drew 0-0 with Burnley on Saturday – Scott Malone played left back for Wagner’s side today.
Terence & Rodney Kongolo
Terence Kongolo can also play in central defence and after such a hectic Christmas and new year period in English football, will likely be pressed into action immediately.
He will also join his brother Rodney Kongolo in the north of England. The latter is owned by Manchester City and is currently on loan at Doncaster Rovers.
Since beating Watford, Huddersfield have now drawn three games in a row. They will be looking for a win against Leicester on Monday.
Terence Kongolo’s first match for Huddersfield could be in the FA Cup versus Bolton, or at home to West Ham in the Premier League.
