Wout Weghorst to undergo Manchester United medical
Wout Weghorst will go through Manchester United medical.
According to reports, Besiktas has approved Wout Weghorst to fly to England in order to complete a transfer to Manchester United.
The Netherlands target man was recently identified by the Red Devils as a temporary fix to their striker problems, and Burnley was contacted about taking over his loan agreement from Besiktas.
While the deal is now progressing smoothly, United were initially not happy that they would have to wait for Besiktas to sort out a replacement for Weghorst, though were understanding of their position.

But the Turkish giants have now agreed to let Weghorst leave before a replacement has signed on the dotted line. Al Nassr’s Vincent Aboubakar has been heavily linked with a return to Besiktas in recent days.
Weghorst will transfer to an English team in January for the second year in a row after initially joining Burnley from Wolfsburg at the beginning of 2022.
While the Clarets were relegated from the Premier League as a result of his two goals in 20 games, he was notable for his performance versus United in a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor early in his time in England.
