Manchester United have agreed to sell winger Tahith Chong to Birmingham City.
The former wonderkid is shortly set to move on transfer deadline day for a fee of around £1.5million, claim the BBC.
Chong, who had a year left on his contract at Old Trafford, is said to be ‘imminently’ signing a five-year contract with the Championship side.

United boss Erik ten Hag gave Chong a chance in pre-season but feels now is the time to sell
The Dutch winger, now 22, spent last season on loan at St Andrew’s, scoring once in 20 appearances in an injury-hit campaign.
Chong has also been out on loan at Bundesliga side Werder Bremen and Belgian outfit Club Brugge.
But the former Holland Under-21 international – who joined United aged 16 from Feyenoord – has only played 16 matches in all competitions for United, including just five in the Premier League.

Birmingham’s West Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion were linked with a loan move for Chong, but that is believed to be unlikely at this stage.
John Eustace’s side have already snapped up talented United midfielder Hannibal Mejbri, 19, on a season-long loan.
The Blues are currently 22nd in the second tier, lying in the relegation zone after one win, two draws and four defeats from their opening seven matches in the league.
