Timothy Fosu-Mensah, the Manchester United defender, has completed his move to Bayer Leverkusen for £ 1.8 million.
Since making his first start as a substitute in the 3-2 win over Arsenal in February 2016, the 23-year-old defender leaves Old Trafford immediately making 30 first-team appearances over the past six and a half seasons.
The Dutch international has decided on a deal with the German club until 2024, which is currently third in the Bundesliga table.
‘Timothy is a technically talented, quick, and physically powerful defender who can be used in the center as a right-back as well,’ said Simon Rolfes, sporting director of Leverkusen.
“In the last few days I’ve talked a lot with the coach, and conversations with Simon Rolfes and Rudi Voller have convinced me that there are great prospects in Leverkusen,” Fosu-Mensah said.
“Both for me personally and for us as a team. That will be really exciting.”
