Crystal Palace are set to sign Manchester United youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah on a season-long loan.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho confirmed Fosu-Mensah would not travel to Macedonia for their Super Cup final against Real Madrid, with the versatile defender expected to join the Eagles.

The 19-year-old worked with Palace manager Frank de Boer at Ajax, before arriving at United in 2014.

He is highly-rated by Old Trafford chiefs, but is behind Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian in the pecking order.

The Dutchman made just 11 appearances last season, many of those coming from the bench.

Fosu-Mensah will be able to play across the Eagles’ defence or in central midfield.

He is set to become Palace’s third signing of the summer, following the captures of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Jairo Riedewald.
