Man United’s Fosu-Mensah moves to Palace

Rookie Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has completed a season-long loan switch to Crystal Palace.

Fosu-Mensah was a regular under Jose Mourinho during pre-season and looked poised to add to his 21 first-team appearances for United.

But Mourinho has allowed the 19-year-old to move to Selhurst Park in order to gain regular Premier League football.

The Holland Under-21 international becomes Palace’s third signing of the summer after the captures of defender Jairo Riedewald and on-loan Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

“The manager spoke to me about coming down to join Crystal Palace and it was clear that he wanted me to be part of his squad which as a player gives you a great feeling straight away,” said Fosu-Mensah.

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

"I am only 19-years-old and still have a lot to learn and therefore getting the opportunity to play more games on a regular basis will help my development."
