Tim Fosu-Mensah was one of the few highlights of what was otherwise an awful campaign for Manchester United last season. Despite rarely featuring this season under new manager Jose Mourinho, the club has offered the young defender a four-year extension, with the option of a further season.

I am delighted to have signed a new contract here at Manchester United. I have enjoyed every minute since I joined this great club and I want to continue the progress that I feel I have made so far. I am learning every day from the manager and the coaching staff. I appreciate the trust that the club has in me and I want to repay that with my performances on the pitch.

Mourinho has sung the praises of Fosu-Fensah and has promised him more playing time as the season goes on.

Tim is young player with great potential. I am pleased that he has signed a new contract and I am delighted at the progress he has made so far. It is clear to see that he is learning every day in training and there will be plenty of opportunities for him as the season continues.
