Man Utd confirm Wout Weghorst shirt number ahead of likely debut vs Crystal Palace



Manchester United new boy Wout Weghorst will wear the No 27 shirt at Old Trafford, according to leaked images online. The Netherlands international has joined the club on loan until the end of the campaign. He’s set to challenge Anthony Martial for a starting berth, with Erik ten Hag convinced his compatriot can be a huge hit.

The striker arrives at Old Trafford on loan for the rest of the campaign after his stay with Besiktas was terminated by mutual consent on Friday. United paid £2.6m in compensation to the Turkish outfit via parent club Burnley after the Clarets did not include a recall clause in his season-long switch agreement.

United have now confirmed that the Dutchman has been allocated the number 27 shirt – previously worn by the likes of Gary Neville, Mikael Silvestre and Marouane Fellaini. Weghorst was not registered in time to make the squad for the Manchester derby, but could be involved at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace where Erik ten Hag could rotate his players.
