New Man Utd signing Wout Weghorst trains for the first time in hint striker will make debut against Crystal Palace | The Sun
WOUT WEGHORST has trained with his new Manchester United team-mates for the first time.
The Dutch ace laced up his boots and took to the pitches at Carrington yesterday.
United swooped to complete a shock loan move for Weghorst from Burnley earlier this month.
And he could be poised to make his debut on Wednesday night, when the Red Devils travel to Crystal Palace.
Despite the famous No7 shirt being available following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Weghorst will have No27 on his back for United.
The 30-year-old bagged just two goals in 20 Prem outings for Burnley last term, before netting nine in 18 for Besiktas during the first half of this campaign.

"I have known him since he was 16 and everywhere he has been he has surprised.
