Fulham defender Terence Kongolo has shared a fresh update regarding his injury recovery after being ruled out for the rest of the season with a foot injury.
Kongolo completed his loan move to join the Cottagers from Huddersfield during the January transfer window, but he only managed to make two appearances for the Championship promotion chasers before sustaining his injury problem.
The 26-year-old made his Fulham debut during the 4-0 FA Cup drubbing at the hands of Manchester City before he came off the bench in the 1-0 victory over Blackburn, but it was in this outing that he picked up the knock that will keep him sidelined.
Kongolo has now taken to Instagram to share an image of him in his hospital bed as he begins his road to recovery, with the Dutchman now having to set his sights on making a return to action during pre-season.
Here is what the defender posted:
Kongolo made 11 appearances for parent club Huddersfield this term prior to his mid-season loan switch, with the Netherlands international having fallen out of favour under Danny Cowley towards the end of 2019.

This is a blow for Fulham given they recruited Kongolo to provide defensive reinforcement between now and the end of the season, and the fact he suffered the injury in February has meant they have been unable to source a replacement.
Parker will take some solace from the fact he does have a wide range of defensive options, particularly following Michael Hector’s long-awaited arrival to the first-team fold in January, so they should be well stocked for the rest of the season.
However, Kongolo would have been hoping to work his way into the Fulham side during the second half of the season ahead of a potential permanent switch in the summer, so it will now be interesting to see what the future holds for the defender.
