Fulham have reopened discussions with Huddersfield Town in an attempt to sign Terence Kongolo, according to report from the Football Insider this morning.

The Whites have made several attempts to sign the Dutch international over the course of the summer, mostly recently looking to reprise the loan deal that saw Kongolo move to Craven Cottage last season. Huddersfield are apparently eager to sell the 25 year-old before the close of the transfer window in October as they seek to raise funds for incoming signings of their own and Fulham are ready to consider to a permanent deal as they desperately seek to strengthen their defence options.

Kongolo made only two appearances on loan for Scott Parker’s side before breaking a metatarsal in foot towards the end of Fulham’s 1-0 win at Blackburn in February and was ruled out for the remainder of the season. Huddersfield are ready to cut their losses on their record signing, who initially impressed on loan and made 56 appearances for Town, scoring one goal. but they are still likely to look to recoup most of the rumoured £17.5m they paid for his services in June 2018.

The versatile defender, who can also operate at left back, came through Feyenoord youth academy and helped the Dutch side win their first league title in almost two decades in 2017. He gained Champions’ League experience with Monaco in France and starred as Huddersfield beat the drop in 2017/2018. Perhaps most importantly of all he would be a left-sided centre half of the ilk that Fulham are crying out for in their own push for Premier League survival. Kongolo, who has won four senior international caps, was part of the Dutch squad that finished fourth in the 2014 World Cup.
