Fulham have confirmed the signing of Huddersfield Town centre-back Terrence Kongolo on a loan deal that will run until the end of the 2019/20 season.
The 25-year-old has arrived to bolster the Whites’ defensive line, and is capable of playing both in the centre and on the left-hand side of defence, with Scott Parker no doubt hoping that he will help restore some solidity to the side.
This season has seen him make 11 second-tier appearances for The Terriers since their relegation from the Premier League, but he has not been involved in the matchday squad since the 5-2 loss to Bristol City at the end of November.
He was a regular throughout the club’s second season in the Premier League, however, racking up 32 appearances as they plummeted to the foot of the table, notching one goal and an assist in the campaign.
QUIZ: Can you name these 15 ex-Fulham defenders?
Along with goalkeeper Jordan Archer, Fulham have now made two new signings this month, as well as finally confirming the arrival of Michael Hector from Chelsea.
Fulham currently sit in fourth place with over half of the season having now elapsed but with seven points still between themselves and Leeds United, who occupy the final place in the automatic promotion places.
I don’t think this is a bad signing for Fulham by any means but I also feel like they probably could have brought in somebody more effective.
Kongolo has clearly fallen out of favour with Danny Cowley and, as much as Fulham need to bring in defensive reinforcements, I feel like moving for somebody a bit more up and coming on a permanent deal may have been the better way to go about things.
But, having said that, Kongolo’s versatility will prove very useful in the run-in.
