According to examinerlive, Aston Villa are plotting a transfer move for Terence Kongolo of Huddersfield Town.

Aston Villa will look to West Yorkshire to shore up a leaky defence as they head into their first season back at the top table of football in England.

The record signing for the Terriers is high up on the wanted list for the Villans, with the Dutch International firmly in their sights.

Reports suggest that Kongolo could help establish Villa back in the top flight following their play-off promotion to the Premier League last season, stating that his versatility in playing either central defence or as a left back is appealing, especially after seeing last years successful loanee, Tyrone Mings,  return to Bournemouth.

Kongolo was one of only a few players to escape last season with his reputation intact following a miserable campaign for Huddersfield, making 32 appearances for the Terriers following the conversion of his loan from AS Monaco being made permanent.

Town paid a hefty £17.5m to bring the player to the John Smiths Stadium, making him the record signing in the club’s history, but big transfer fees do not always mean safety from relegation, as Fulham fans will also attest.

A departure has been expected for the defender, with the blue and whites expecting top European interest., can Aston Villa prize him away from Yorkshire or will the players future lie in sunnier climates?

What Huddersfield Town fans reckon about this is not known, although there will be likely views to be had across Twitter.
