Manchester United will consider sending Dutch winger Tahith Chong out on loan this January.

In the summer, Chong was linked with a loan move to both Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven, but decided to fight for his place at Manchester United.

Chong has only made two appearances in the Premier League so far and Academy player performance manager Luke Perry has told the club’s website that the Netherlands U21 international could be loaned out in January.

He said, “We’ll plan it out and we’ve identified four or five who might be going out in January. Obviously, our first-team manager has a say.

“Three lads could have possibly gone on loan – Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong and James Garner – but he wanted to keep them here and have a look at them on tour. So a decision will be made, no doubt, for January as well. Hopefully, all three will be in the first team and not going anywhere.

“As we know at this club, lads have got into the first team and a lot of it has been through circumstances they’ve got no control over. They’ve been presented with an opportunity and they’ve taken the opportunity so now a couple of them are regulars on the team sheet each week. We’ve had opportunities that have cropped up from nowhere. That’s football.”
