(Reuters) - Bayer Leverkusen have signed versatile Dutch defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah from Manchester United on a three-year contract, the Bundesliga club said on Wednesday.
United did not disclose the transfer fee but British media reported that the German club paid around 1.5 million pounds ($2.05 million) for the Netherlands international.
Fosu-Mensah, 23, played 30 games in all competitions for United after making his debut in 2016.
"In the last few days I've talked a lot with the coach and conversations... have convinced me that there are great prospects in Leverkusen," Fosu-Mensah, who also played on loan for Fulham and Crystal Palace, said in a statement https://www.bundesliga.com/en/bundesliga/news/bayer-leverkusen-sign-timothy-fosu-mensah-from-manchester-united-14276.
"Both for me personally and for us as a team. That will be really exciting."
Leverkusen are third in the Bundesliga with 29 points after 15 games. They travel to Union Berlin on Friday.
