Manchester United’s youngster Tahith Chong has been seen back in Carrington as he begins to recover from an injury that shortened his loan spell at Birmingham.
The Curacao-born winger had impressed for Lee Bowyer’s team in the Championship, but returned to United earlier this month to undergo surgery to repair a broken thigh he sustained during training.
Chong’s operation was a success, but now the 21-year-old is facing an expected four to five months of rehabilitation process before he can start playing again.
The United academy candidate was spotted by photographers arriving at the club’s training facilities on Tuesday morning as he continues his rehabilitation with the hope of playing again next spring.

Chong had impressed immensely during his loan spell at Birmingham, where he recorded three assists in 13 appearances for the Championship team.
The young player had joined the Blues on a season-long loan, and earlier this month manager Bowyer revealed he would love to bring Chong back to the club in the new year if a deal can be reached with United.
“It’s a massive loss, everyone knows how he’s been since he’s been here, he’s been a great player for us,” he told the Birmingham Mail.
“So it’s hard to take, but the most important thing now for Tahith is that he gets his rehabilitation right, which he will do, he will return to Man United now and they will take care of him.
“These things happen in football, I talked to him yesterday and Sunday and he’s down, but I said, ‘these things happen and you have to make sure you’re a stronger man when you get through it.’ But it’s hard, he just loves the game.
“He’s been great here, we’ll definitely miss him.
“I hope both clubs can figure something out, as you know the budget has always been one-in-one. I hope the two clubs can reach an agreement so we can still use him when he comes back towards the end of the season. “
