AS Monaco announce that they have completed the signing of Feyenoord defender Terence Kongolo on a five-year deal.

AS Monaco have announced that they have signed Feyenoord defender Terence Kongolo on a long-term contract.

Last season's Champions League semi-finalists are currently braced for a number of departures, but they continue to make their own signings ahead of the defence of their Ligue 1 title.

Netherlands international Kongolo has arrived for a reported fee of £11.41m, and he has revealed that he is excited to begin a new challenge in Monte Carlo.

The 23-year-old told the club's official website: "I am very pleased to join AS Monaco. I will discover an exciting new challenge at a prestigious and ambitious club.

"I look forward to meeting the staff, my new teammates and doing the best on the field to help the group."

Kongolo - who can play at left-back or centre-back - leaves the Dutch club having made 134 appearances in all competitions.
