Huddersfield Town are in the market for the cousin of Manchester United and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku- reports the Examiner Live website.

Town manager Jan Siewert is taking a look into the possibility of bringing Romelu Lukaku’s cousin Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo to West Yorkshire.

The Rapid Vienna full-back, who made ten Europa League appearances last season would be a welcome addition to the club following relegation from The Premier League last time out and would add competition in the full-back position.

European experience against the likes of Rangers, Villarreal and Inter Milan is all well and good but can the 23-year-old Belgian produce the goods on a rainy Tuesday night in Luton? this remains to be seen I suppose.

Looking at his figures for last season the youngster made twenty five appearances for the Austrian Bundesliga outfit, scoring two goals and laying on four assists, not bad for a left sided defender.

At this moment in time there is no indication as to what fee would be demanded for Bolingoli-Mbombo, but money should not be an issue for The Terriers with them gaining almost £100m from Premier League money last time out.

Meanwhile Town are poised to lose record signing Terence Kongolo as interest from Aston Villa intensifies and new signing Tommy Elphick has had his say regarding Huddersfield’s prospects of bouncing straight back to The Premier League saying:

“The foundations are here, the base for us, the core of the squad is here and the head coach has impressed me a lot when I had conversations with him. He is a passionate guy, he has a way, a structure, a philosophy, which is so important in The Championship. If we buy into that, back each other, then there’s no reason why we can’t have a successful season”
