Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has completed his move to Bayer Leverkusen.

MEN Sport understands  United  have received a fee in the region of £1.5million for  Fosu-Mensah  after he rejected a new contract earlier this season.

The Dutchman’s contract was set to expire in the summer and United were keen to extend his stay at Old Trafford but were snubbed as he felt ‘undervalued’ by the terms offered.

A source close to the player told the MEN that while Fosu-Mensah was sad to be leaving United he is ‘excited to get a fresh start and show people what he is really capable of.’

The versatile defender, who arrived at the club in 2014 from the Ajax academy and spent time on loan at Crystal Palace and Fulham, has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Leverkusen which runs until the summer of 2024.

“A step into a really interesting and very strong league in which Bayer 04 has been one of the best teams for years. I’m really looking forward to this team and also to working with Peter Bosz, ” Fosu-Mensah said on the move.

“In the past 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. Both for me personally and for us as a team. It’s going to be really exciting. ”

Stay tuned for the latest news throughout the day.
