  • Man Utd starlet Tim Fosu-Mensah completes loan switch to Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah on a season long loan deal.

A statement on United's official website read, "Manchester United prospect Tim Fosu-Mensah will spend the 2017/18 season on loan at Crystal Palace, working under the management of fellow Dutchman Frank de Boer".

Starting his youth career at Ajax in his native Netherlands, Fosu-Mensah quickly caught the eye of the Red Devils and in 2014 joined the Mancunian club's youth ranks.

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

Trump blasts North Korea over new report about its nuclear weapons
Turnbull added: "If North Korea decides to carry out some of its violent threats, then obviously awful consequences will follow". Trump has said he will not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.


Fosu-Mensah joined United's academy from Ajax as a 16-year-old and broke into the first-team under Louis van Gaal during the 2015-16 season at Old Trafford.

Widely seen as one of the club's standout prospects, a year ago Fosu-Mensah signed a new deal that ties him until the summer of 2020.

But now Fosu-Mensah will turn out at Selhurst Park and the versatile defender, who can also operate in midfield, is hoping to learn plenty from his time in south London.

In total so far, Tim has tallied 21 Reds appearances across all competitions and operated most commonly at right-back, but the talented Netherlands worldwide has displayed his versatility by also performing admirably at centre-back and in central midfield. De Boer says "I am seeing him in our system as a right centre back but he can also play full back in a 4-3-3".
