Wout Weghorst due in England to complete Manchester United move

  • Striker leaving Besiktas on loan until end of season
  • United paying £2.7m for ending his time in Turkey early

Wout Weghorst is due to fly to Manchester on Thursday for a medical with a view to signing for Manchester United until the end of the season. The Netherlands striker, who is on loan at Besiktas from Burnley, was identified by his compatriot Erik ten Hag as the ideal solution to United’s search for a forward.

United have agreed to pay Besiktas €3m (£2.7m) as compensation for ending his spell early. The Turkish club have been adamant they would not let Weghorst go without a suitable replacement and have been working to try to bring in Vincent Aboubakar from Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia.

Weghorst has scored eight goals in 16 Turkish league games. He scored twice in 20 Premier League matches for Burnley, after signing from Wolfsburg.
