Monaco Player Heading To Huddersfield In January Deal

Huddersfield Town are set to complete a very exciting signing that will aid them in their first season in the Premier League.

David Wagner's side have been very good so far this term and currently lie in 11th place on 24 points. One would think they have enough about them to stay in the league but it makes sense for the Terriers to do some business in January to add to their squad.

And according to the reliable Mohamed Bouhafsi, Monaco defender Terence Kongolo is heading to the John Smith's Stadium on a loan deal.

The 23-year old joined Leonardo Jardim's side from Feyenoord in summer but has only made five appearances in all competitions, starting just three league games.

Kongolo, who is capable of playing as a centre-back or on the left side of defence, has been viewed as one of the top defensive prospects for the Netherlands and he even featured at the 2014 World Cup, where the Dutch came third.

But with a lack of game-time at Monaco, Huddersfield are swooping in to give him a crack at the Premier League. The deal is basically done, with only a final signature needed. There will be no option for Huddersfield to purchase Kongolo permanently but it's a very eye-catching addition for the Yorkshire club.

Kongolo, despite his relative youth, has amassed over 100 professional appearances in his career, including 32 outings as Feyenoord won the Eredivisie title last season.
