Manchester United's Tahith Chong joins Werder Bremen on season-long loan deal

Bundesliga side Werder Bremen have completed a season-long loan deal for Manchester United striker Tahith Chong.

Chong will be on loan until the summer of 2021 and will be looking to gain more game time opportunities with Werder Bremen.

"We're delighted that Tahith has decided to join us. He's a talented youngster with real potential, who has already gained some experience at the highest level with Manchester United.

"Now he will have to get used to the Bundesliga and take the next step in his development with us," Sporting Director Frank Baumann said.

Bremen manager Florian Kohfeldt shared his delight in the new signing: "He's a very technically gifted player who can play on both wings. He's also really fast, which will help our game.

"Defensively he has potential for development - he's still only at the start of his career and we want to help him continue fulfilling his potential."

Tahith Chong's first words as a Bremen player, he said: "First of all, I'm happy to be here and I'm looking forward to pre-season training with the team.

"This move is a great opportunity for me to develop. I'm looking forward to next season."
