Tahith Chong set to join Birmingham City on loan from Manchester United

Manchester United winger Tahith Chong is set to join Birmingham City on loan this summer, according to The Telegraph.

The Dutch footballer spent the first part of the 2020-21 season on loan at Werder Bremen before joining Belgian side Club Brugge for the remainder of the campaign.

The talented winger returned to pre-season at Carrington this week along with his teammates Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams.

However, the 21-year-old is now set to leave Old Trafford for another loan spell.     

Chong signed a new deal with United in March 2020 that will keep him at the club until 2022, with the Red Devils also having the option to extend for a further year.

He joined United in April 2016 but has made 16 appearances for the senior side, with two assists to his name.

The 21-year-old’s last appearance for United came in the second leg of the Europa League tie against LASK Linz in August 2020.

Chong is a hugely talented player but his performances have not warranted him being handed opportunities in United’s first team.

He failed to shine at Bremen and was sparsely used as a substitute.

The winger’s subsequent spell at Club Brugge was a little more successful as he contributed a goal and four assists in nine appearances for the Belgian side.

The young footballer will have a brilliant opportunity to prove his abilities if he plays for Birmingham City in the Championship next season.
