Meulensteen backing Man Utd move for Weghorst

 Former Manchester United assistant coach Rene Meulensteen says Wout Weghorst can prove a clever signing.

Weghorst is in talks with United as the Burnley striker seeks to break his loan with Besiktas.

Meulensteen has explained what Weghorst would bring to United.

"He is different, that is why Ten Hag is bringing him in," Meulensteen told BBC Sport. "He offers something else that the other Manchester United forwards don't have - but I don't think he will be a starter every game.

"He is tall, standing at 6ft 6in, and if United need to go a bit more direct and play off the knockdown, he is the type of guy that can offer that in the box. He is good at link-up play too, you can give him the ball then play through him.

"He is a good character who is determined, a hard worker and a fighter - those are his biggest traits. He is a nice lad too and there is no nonsense with him - Weghorst will put a shift in for the team.

"He possesses all the qualities Ten Hag wants in a player and so will fit in at United."
