He was breastfed with her maternal uncle five times – is she forbidden for him for marriage?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
 A man is planning to propose to a girl soon. He was breastfed with her uncle five times until he had enough during two years. Is it haram for him to marry her?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

If this young man breastfed from the grandmother of the girl, who is the mother of her maternal uncle, and had five full breastfeedings within the first two years, then he is a son to her (the grandmother) through breastfeeding, and he is a brother to the girl’s maternal uncle through breastfeeding, so he is a maternal uncle to the girl through breastfeeding and it is not permissible for him to marry her. 

But if he was breastfed with her maternal uncle from another woman, such as his own mother, then he is a brother to her maternal uncle through breastfeeding, but there is no relationship of mahram between him and the girl, and he may marry her.

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
