DONE DEAL: Man Utd youngster Chong out to emulate De Bruyne, Gnabry at Werder Bremen

Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong says it was an 'easy decision' to join Werder Bremen.

The 20-year-old forward has moved away on loan for the first time, joining the Bundesliga club for the 2020/21 season.

Speaking to the Bremen website, Chong said: “I already knew about the club and how big Werder are in Germany when I first spoke to the coach.

“The decision was a very easy one. The approach of the club is also excellent so I knew straightaway that this will be the right team for me."

Chong was also asked if he would like to follow in the footsteps of Serge Gnabry and Kevin De Bruyne, who cut their teeth at the club before moving on to great heights.

“It's definitely in the back of your head when you come here," the Dutchman added.

"The club's history and reputation for helping players like Gnabry and de Bruyne advance their careers is always good to hear, so I'm sure this the right place to continue my development."
