David Wagner told the club's website: “Isaac is a very exciting player and this is a great deal for Huddersfield Town for a player with such ability and potential. You do not play for Belgium at Under-21 level unless you have some outstanding attributes.
“He’s a very quick winger with a direct style of play, which is exactly what we were looking for. As you can see from his last season at Montpellier, he has a real eye for goal too.
“When we first spoke, it’s clear that he is a real winner too; a fierce competitor who will not accept second-best. I like these characteristics in our players!
“I’m looking forward to working with Isaac on the training pitch and in the classroom to help him understand our style of play.”
Mbenza will wear the number 18 shirt for Huddersfield as they look to improve upon their finish of 16th in last season's Premier League.
