DONE DEAL: Man Utd winger Chong delighted after making Birmingham move

Birmingham City have signed Manchester United winger Tahith Chong on-loan for the season.

He becomes the second Dutchman to put down roots in the Second City this week after compatriot Juan Castillo completed his move on Tuesday from Chelsea.

Chong said: “I'm excited to get started. Excited to get to know my new teammates and everyone at the Club.

“I spoke to the Manager here and heard about the plans the Club has for this season and for me as well.

“He spoke to me about some improvement points and I'm looking forward to working with him. I want to come here and become a better player and develop.

“I'm really looking forward to getting to know the Championship and to see what it brings.

“I'm a player who likes to get at players, like to dribble and beat players. I'm fast and I'll try to bring that to the team.

“I'm looking forward to the season and to meet all the fans. I think I'm even more excited than they are!"

Chong will remain with Manchester United for the beginning of their pre-season before joining up with Blues at an agreed time ahead of our Sky Bet Championship campaign.
