Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has completed a permanent move to Bayer Leverkusen.
The transfer for an undisclosed fee has been confirmed by Manchester United.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah, 23, will embark on a fresh chapter of his career in Germany after agreeing terms with Leverkusen, who are currently 3rd in the Bundesliga.
The defender, who can play centrally or at full-back, has previously had loan spells away from Old Trafford with Crystal Palace and Fulham. It was previously thought that he could also play as a defensive midfielder, so it will be intriguing to see how he gets on at Leverkusen and where he’ll play in Peter Bosz’s side.

Bosz managed Ajax between 2016-17 and that’s where Fosu-Mensah played before joining United’s Academy, the same year the current Leverkusen took charge of the Eredivisie side.
Fosu-Mensah wasn’t good enough to compete with Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back, and considering United should be looking to add to that department it’s telling that they’ve let the Dutch international leave midway through the season.
He wasn’t part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans so it’s best to move him on.
All the best to Fosu-Mensah.
