Teden Mengi joined Derby County on loan from Manchester United in January 2021 until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
Manchester-born Mengi is a graduate of the Premier League club’s youth system and the central defender became Wayne Rooney’s first signing since being appointed as Derby’s manager on a permanent basis in mid-January.
During his time in United’s youth team, Mengi regularly wore the captain’s armband and has since progressed into their Under-23 and first-team squads.
Mengi, capped by England at Under-15, 16, 17 and 18 level, made his senior bow for United off the bench in their Europa League victory over LASK Linz last August.
He has been an unused substitute for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in the 2020/21 campaign during their Carabao Cup matches against Luton Town and Brighton & Hove Albion and also in the Champions League.
In addition, he has also gained senior experience by playing in the EFL Trophy as part of the Red Devils’ Under-23 side over the last two seasons.
