AS Monaco has loaned out Terence Kongolo to English Premier League side Huddersfield for the rest of the season. The newly-promoted side is fighting to avoid relegation. Swiss-born Kongolo has won three caps for the Netherlands.
The 23-year-old defender joined from Feyenoord in the last transfer window, and has played for Monaco six times.
“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,” Huddersfield Head Coach David Wagner said on Tuesday, January 2.
Meanwhile, Souahilo Meite – the defensive midfielder was also recruited by the Principality in the summer of 2017 – has joined Bordeaux on loan from Monaco until the end of this season. His current contract is until June 2022 and the 23-year-old has played three times this season in French Ligue 1.
