Manchester United defender joins Palace

English Premier League side Crystal Palace has confirmed the signing of Ghanaian born Dutch Timothy Fosu Mensah for the 2017/2018 season.

The 19-year-old is highly regarded at Old Trafford following his recent ascent into the first-team squad, having graduated from the Academy to make his senior debut under Louis van Gaal in February 2016 before establishing himself as a valuable player to Jose Mourinho in 2016/17.

In total so far, Tim has tallied 21 Reds appearances across all competitions and operated most commonly at right-back, but the talented Netherlands international has displayed his versatility by also performing admirably at centre-back and in central midfield.

Palace manager De Boer was in charge of the AFC Ajax youth team between 2007 and 2010, when Fosu-Mensah was climbing the ranks of their Academy before his move to United in 2014.
