Kongolo has only made six appearances for Monaco since signing from Feyenoord in the summer for €13 million and will now hope to get his season back on track in the Premier League.

The versatile defender, who can play in the centre if defence or at left-back, has joined Huddersfield Town on loan until the end of the season, but there is no clause to make the deal permanent.

The Terriers coach David Wagner told the club’s website, “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. With Michael Hefele and Jon Gorenc Stankovic returning from long-term injuries, it was important to have this.

“Terence has qualities that will really suit our style of play. He’s athletic and mobile and he plays on the front foot in the way he defends and uses the ball.”
