Terence Kongolo made the switch from Huddersfield Town to Fulham on Friday. The 26-year-old defender has signed a four-year contract in London, with an option for another season.
The transfer reportedly involves an amount of 4 million euros. Kongolo was already rented to Fulham by Huddersfield Town last season for six months. Due to a lingering foot injury, he only played two games for ‘The Cottagers’.
Without the four-time Orange-international, Fulham then promoted to the Premier League. He previously played 45 times on behalf of Huddersfield at the highest level in England.
Thanks to a special rule in England, Kongolo was still able to move to Fulham. Until Friday 6 p.m. Dutch time, Premier League clubs were still allowed to do business with clubs from the Championship, League One and League Two.

Huddersfield attracted Kongolo for another 20 million
At Fulham, Kongolo meets his fellow countryman Kenny Tete. The right back exchanged Olympique Lyon last summer for the PhD student from London, who is still waiting for the first point after four matches and is the last player in the Premier League.
Kongolo had been under contract with Huddersfield since mid-2018, which first rented him from AS Monaco for six months and then took it over for 20 million euros. For ‘The Terriers’ he played a total of sixty games in which he scored once.
In 2012, the left leg made his debut in professional football at Feyenoord. After five years in Rotterdam, he opted for an adventure at AS Monaco.
