Manchester United allowed Timothy Fosu-Mensah to join Fulham on a season-long loan deal last summer.

The Dutchman has eight appearances in the Premier League this season, which includes seven starts and all of those were when Slaviša Jokanović was in charge.

Since Claudio Ranieri took charge at Craven Cottage in November, the 21-year-old has made only one appearance and has been left out of the squad in 11 league games.

His limited playing time at Fulham is something both the defender and the Red Devils are unhappy about, according to

Manchester United wanted him to develop by playing regular football elsewhere, but that hasn’t happened so far this campaign. Therefore, Fosu-Mensah could leave Ranieri’s side and join another club on a temporary deal.

It is claimed that Lazio are one of the clubs who have tested the market to see if they can land the fullback on loan in the winter market.

The report doesn’t mention whether Fosu-Mensah, Fulham or United are interested in the loan transfer.

A source has told Sport Witness that, right now, it’s likeliest for Fosu-Mensah to continue at Fulham beyond the mid-season transfer window, even though he’s featured only once since the former Leicester City manager took charge in November.
