According to Manchester Evening News, Birmingham City have agreed a deal with the Red Devils to sign Dutch playmaker, Tahith Chong.

The news source have mentioned that the 22-year-old starlet will sign a five-year contract with the Blues, who are struggling in the Championship at the moment.

Chong moved to Man United from Eredivisie side, Feyenoord, and was considered to be a promising talent.

Two years ago, under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the youngster, who can play in multiple offensive positions, was handed a new contract worth £30,000 a week (The Sun).

However, he is now leaving the 20-time English champions without starting a single game in the Premier League. Overall, Chong has featured in 16 games for United’s senior side and provided 2 assists.

Last term, he played on loan for Birmingham, started 18 games in the Championship, scored a goal and provided three assists.

The Blues, who are currently 22nd in the table after 7 games, were impressed and that is why they have moved in to agree a deal, which is expected to be completed before the end of today’s transfer deadline.
