Terence Kongolo

Huddersfield Town have spent a club-record fee to sign defender Terence Kongolo from Monaco on a permanent basis.

Kongolo, 24, made 17 appearances on loan for the Terriers last year to help keep the club in the Premier League.

And the Netherlands international has now signed a four-year contract to remain in Huddersfield, after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee worth more than the £11.4m the Terriers paid Montpellier for Steve Mounie last summer.

“His signing is a big statement for this club,” Huddersfield coach David Wagner told the club’s website. “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.”
