Tahith Chong will not rush into a decision over his future this summer after spending the season on loan away from Manchester United.

Chong has spent the second half of the campaign with Belgian side Club Brugge after a disappointing stint with German outfit Werder Bremen was brought to an end in January.

The 21-year-old scored on his debut and has provided three assists in six Jupiler Pro League appearances so far.

His contract expires at the end of next season and United may decide to cash in on the youngster this summer, if manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not view him as part of his future plans.

But Chong is taking his time over any decision and insists his focus is purely on the task at hand with his loan side.

‘I look at it step by step,’ Chong told De Kraant van West-Vlaanderen.

‘If I start thinking about where I want to be next year, I wouldn’t be focused on Anderlecht next Sunday.

‘I can only do my utmost. And enjoy the game. I always try to play football with a smile.

‘My focus is now on the two remaining matches and the play-offs. You will have to prove yourself there anyway.

‘(If I could choose) then I would go home and discuss it with my mum and dad. Then I’ll listen to the pluses and minuses. Then we’ll work it out as a family.’
