A few weeks ago, we brought you the news that Timothy Fosu-Mensah had put pen to paper on a professional contract with Manchester United.
Although there has been no official confirmation from Man United, a photo has now been released of Fosu-Mensah all smiles alongside Ryan Giggs signing his deal.
More than any other player over the last 12 months, Fosu-Mensah has impressed and progressed through the ranks at United.
He joined from Ajax as a 16-year-old centre-back last summer but has since gone on to show his versatility in defensive, central and attacking midfield.
At U18s and U19s level last year, Fosu-Mensah was a stand-out player and he has been fast-tracked into the U21s as a consequence, despite only being 17.
Although it is too early to get excited about the prospect of seeing Fosu-Mensah playing first-team football, his accelerated progression through the younger age groups is indicative of his talent. He looks like a real gem.
As we’ve said previously, it’s excellent to see United securing the futures of some of the club’s most talented youngsters in the likes of Fosu-Mensah, Gribbin and Pereira. Long may it continue.
We’ll be following Fosu-Mensah’s progress this season closely and it will be very interesting to see how he gets on with Warren Joyce’s U21s.
