United head coach Steve Bruce said: “Quite simply we’ve had three right-backs at the club now, and I think DeAndre’s suited to playing as a wing-back. It’s been no secret that we’ve been trying to change to a back four for a while now. I’d like to wish DeAndre the very best of luck in Turkey. He’s a great pro and a great lad.”
