Huddersfield Town defender Terence Kongolo is undergoing a medical at Fulham today, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

The Londoners have agreed a deal with the Championship club for the centre-back, 26, to join on a permanent deal.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Fulham are likely to pay a fee of around £3million for Kongolo after beating Sheffield United to his signature.

It will reunite the Holland international with the club where he spent the second half of last season on loan.

Kongolo only played two matches for Fulham due to a foot injury but that has not stopped them pursuing a permanent deal this summer.

The transfer is set to represent a huge loss for Huddersfield, who signed the Dutchman for a fee reported to be £18m in 2018.
