Left-back, centre-back and Dutch International, he’s a decent coup for a club of Huddersfield’s level.

Speaking about the deal to the club's website, Huddersfield manager David Wagner said:
“He is a high-quality young centre back and will provide us with a great option for the rest of the Premier League season."
Speaking about Kongolo's quality, Wagner went onto claim:
Kongolo has struggled for first team opportunities since moving to Monaco, having made just six appearances in all competitions this season, and a deal to bring the Dutchman to Huddersfield was reportedly in place in before the start of the transfer window.
