Manchester United‘s Tahith Chong has joined Club Brugge after his spell with Bundesliga side Werder Bremen was cut short.

The 21-year-old featured just 13 times for Bremen after joining them on loan in the summer transfer window.

The Holland U21 international Chong, who has made 16 appearances for United, will now spend the rest of the season with the Belgian giants who he played against for the Red Devils in last season’s Europa League.

At the age of 21, Chong was looking to impress Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the United staff during his loan spell.

However, he started just four times for Bremen and scored one goal in the DFB Pokal Cup.

Chong was also an unused substitute during Bremen’s 1-1 draw with Schalke on Saturday afternoon.

As a result, Chong will join Club Brugge – who are comfortably leading the Belgian top-flight. 

Brugge have also announced the signing of Nabil Dirar from Fenerbahce at the same time as Chong.
