Manchester United Announce Transfer Of Versatile Midfielder

Timothy Fosu Mensah has made 21 first-team appearances for parent club Manchester United

Crystal Palace have announced the season-long loan signing of Manchester United's Holland Under-21 worldwide defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Fosu-Mensah joined United in 2014 after impressing for Dutch side Ajax at the AEGON Future Cup, and under Louis van Gaal in 2015-16, had eight topflight outings in his first year of Premier League football. He has made 21 appearances for the club since making his first-team appearance in the 2015/2016 season.

But the Dutchman is unsure if Sakho will be following Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Jairo Riedewald, the trio of signings who have moved to Selhurst Park in the transfer window. He has played in various defensive and midfield positions, and signed a long-term contract at the club last October.

'Timothy is a player who has great pace and incredible physical ability, ' said de Boer.

Crystal palace play Premier League new boys Huddersfield on Saturday and the game could come to early for Fosu-Mensah, although he would be eligible to play if De Boer considers him ready.

'I must now repay that back by putting in some good performances for the club.

Fosu-Mensah has also featured at various youth levels for the Netherlands national team.

'I am seeing him in our system as a right centre-back but he can also play full-back in a 4-3-3'.
