Belgian side Club Brugge have confirmed that they have completed the necessary process involved in sealing the loan move for Manchester United’s Young prospect Tahith Chong. The young player is widely considered as one of the future stars of the Red Devils and is seen at the club as one of the generational talents but with too much competition for slots in the first-team, manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær decided it was only wise to send him out on loan so he could get more game time.
He was initially sent out on loan to join German Bundesliga side Werder Bremen but after a few fine spell for the team, he was no longer given enough time and opportunities to show how good he is and how better he can become.
He was present for Bremen’s Saturday fixture in the Bundesliga against Schalke 04 but remained on the bench and was an unused substitute in the 1-1 stalemate. He now has a shot at redemption having being handed another lifeline to prove to United chiefs that he is worth keeping and not to be discarded.
His move to Brugge will see him become just the fifth Dutchman to play for the Belgian club, following in the footsteps of Ruud Vormer, Noa Lang, Bas Dost, and Stefano Denswil. He will also remain in Belgium for the remainder of the current campaign following the loan move having spent the first half of the season in Germany.
About the transfer, Chong said he was delighted to be joining Brugge and sent out his thanks to Bremen for giving him the opportunity to represent them and the experience of playing in Germany. He said he has only fond memories of his time in the Bundesliga but wants to focus on his football now that he has signed for another club.
