Tahith Chong has been confirmed as a Manchester United academy player in time for their season opener against Derby County. Interestingly arsenal also scouted the promising Dutch winger.

The club confirmed on their official website that Chong has completed his move from Feyenoord in time for the game.

On April 29, the winger had said that he would make the switch to United, with reports further claimed that the player was close to a transfer a month earlier.

Chong won the individual trophy for the best attacking player at the Otten Cup, a youth competition, over the weekend. United’s youngsters reached the final of that event, having defeated Barcelona in the semifinals, but they lost on penalties against Anderlecht in the final.

Manchester United also confirmed another new recruit for the academy, forward Joshua Bohui, who has sealed a switch from Brentford.

United have already named eight first-year scholars for 2016-17. The list includes Aidan Barlow, Jake Barrett, Max Dunne, Luca Ercolani, Angel Gomes, Lee O’Connor, Harry Spratt, George Tanner.

Born in Willemstad, the capital city of the Caribbean island nation of Curaçao, Chong grew up in the Netherlands and has been a part of the Feyenoord youth set-up since the age of 10. He’s also a Dutch Under-17 international.

His technique, oversight, and pace are quite impressive as the young lad operates exclusively as a left-forward. He thinks and acts very fast in a game and has little trouble dribbling past defenders, giving good crosses to teammates and scoring surprising goals

Chong is also good with both feet and often plays as an inverted winger, while at the same time being able to give crosses with his left foot. The combination of pace, technique, and oversight make him really special.
