Wout Weghorst lined up for immediate Premier League return after impressing on Man Utd loan transfer | The Sun

WOUT WEGHORST is reportedly set for an immediate Premier League return after impressing at Manchester United.

That's with Everton lining up a transfer bid for the Burnley striker after beating the drop on the final day of the season.

Weghorst, 30, joined the Red Devils on loan from Vincent Kompany's side in January.

And he made an immediate impact as Erik ten Hag thrust him up front in United's XI.

Weghorst failed to score a single goal in 17 league appearances.

But he did manage two strikes in his other 14 games across the cups.

And talkSPORT claim Everton are now looking to pounce as Sean Dyche searches for a target man.

The Toffees boss signed Weghorst for Burnley in a £12million move 18 months ago.

Man United have no plans to make the Dutchman's loan permanent.

And Dyche is keen on a reunion as he looks for a striker to come in for injury-prone Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Weghorst was previously linked with a permanent move to PSV Eindhoven.

But that has been thrown into doubt after Ruud van Nistelrooy quit the club last month.

SunSport also understands Weghorst is wanted for a second loan at Turkish side Besiktas.

And he is unlikely to have a future at Burnley either, with the Championship winners playing a new technical style under Kompany.

Speaking ahead of United's FA Cup final defeat to Man City, the Belgian said: "He's a player from Burnley football club who has played in the top four of the Premier League for Manchester United and also for Holland

"The most important thing for me – and it's a tough one for me to say obviously because of the Cup Final – is for him personally to finish the season on a high.

"But still, I want him to do well and we will have the conversation."
