According to Samuel Luckhurst from the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United have triggered the one-year contract extension for Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
Whilst Fosu-Mensah has been recovering from an injury as of late, he has not played for United since the 2016/2017 final day of the season.
His contract was running out in the middle of this summer but the MEN are reporting it has been extended.
Fosu-Mensah showed promise when he had a run in the side at right-back, however, he has not had a consecutive run in the team nor has he played in his prefered role as ‘holding midfielder’.
Fosu-Mensah also played pivotal roles in the FA Cup-winning side of 2016 with Louis Van Gaal.
He made few appearances under Jose Mourinho but has struggled to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side with Fred in his preferred position and Wan-Bissaka in his substitute.
He has only made two appearances for the Under-23s this season but with the contract extension, Solskjaer has made it known he may well be in his plans.
