Manchester United announced the signing on their website, but stated they are still awaiting international clearance before the versatile defender can make his debut for the club’s academy.

Fosu-Mensah was an impressive part of the Ajax youth team that triumphed in last season’s AEGON Future Cup, with the youngster capable of playing either at full back or in the centre of defence.

Ajax are believed to have received around £300,000 in compensation for the deal.
