Huddersfield Town have announced the permanent capture of Netherlands international defender Terence Kongolo.
The Monaco man spent the second half of last season on loan with the Terriers in their maiden Premier League campaign, impressing massively as David Wagner’s side avoided the drop.
Widespread reports have suggested a fee of around €20m (£17.5m) for Kongolo, which would represent a record signing for the Yorkshire club, but the official announcement states an undisclosed fee.
A statement on the club’s website reads: “Huddersfield Town is delighted to confirm that Terence Kongolo has today completed a permanent transfer to the Club from AS Monaco.
“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.”
