Tahith Chong set to Join German Side on Loan
Manchester United’s Dutch winger Tahith Chong is training with Werder Bremen before completing a 10-month loan move to the German side. The 20-year-old signed a new contract in March, which means he will be with Manchester United until June 2022. The Netherlands Under-21 player joined United’s academy in 2016 from Feyenoord and made his senior debut in July 2018.
According to the German Bundesliga side, they said: “Although the final terms of his move are yet to be agreed, Chong has been given permission to train with the club.” Chong has seen his first-team appearances limited at United and last played when he came off the bench in the LASK game which United in the Europa League last-16 tie in July.
The Bremen squad are currently in pre-season training for the new Bundesliga campaign, which is set to start on 18 September. Florian Kohfeldt’s side finished 16th last season in the Bundesliga table but avoided going down after winning the relegation play-off against Bundesliga 2 side Heidenheim on the away goals rule.
