Report: Huddersfield Town man closing in on Premier League move



Huddersfield Town defender Terence Kongolo is undergoing a medical today (Tuesday) ahead of a proposed move to Fulham, a report from Football Insider has claimed.

Kongolo spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham, where injury restricted him to just two appearances for the Cottagers as they won promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs, although it seems that has not put the London club off a permanent move for the 26-year-old.

It was previously reported that Fulham were keen to bring Kongolo back to Craven Cottage this summer as they look to strengthen the centre of their defence for this Premier League season, and it now looks as though they have got their man.

According to this latest update, Kongolo is set to undergo a medical at Fulham on Tuesday, with Scott Parker’s side having beaten off competition from Premier League rivals Sheffield United to secure the signing of the Dutchman.

It is thought that Fulham will pay Huddersfield around £3million for the centre back, a significant reduction on the reported £18million the Terriers paid Monaco for his services back in 2018.

During his time with Huddersfield, Kongolo made 60 appearances in all competitions for the Yorkshire club, scoring once.

The Verdict

This looks like it could be a decent move for Fulham.

They have already strengthened the centre of their defence recently with the additions of Tosin Adarabioyo and Joachim Andersen on the final day of the international transfer window.

Now, the seemingly imminent arrival of Kongolo means they will have another reliable option to call upon as they look to recover from what has been an awful start to their return to the Premier League.

For Huddersfield however, the amount of money they are losing on Kongolo will obviously be frustrating, but it does seem as though a parting of the ways is best for all concerned, and this will at least clear some cost off the wage bill.
