Crystal Palace to send Fosu-Mensah (plus £1M) back to Man Utd

Crystal Palace are considering sending Timothy Fosu-Mensah back to Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says United will be in line for a £1 million 'penalty payment' if Crystal Palace decide to return defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah to Old Trafford early in order to free up space for another Premier League loan.

Roy Hodgson's January transfer plans have been complicated by Palace using their maximum allowance of two PL loans in season-long deals for Fosu-Mensah and Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

It means Palace can't follow up interest in other domestic loan targets like Liverpool forward Danny Ings unless a vacancy is created with Fosu-Mensah the likeliest candidate having started only five of Hodgson's 16 league games in charge.
