Agreement in principle: Nabil Dirar and Tahith Chong join Club Brugge

Nabil Dirar and Tahith Chong will give coach Clement more tactical options after they have completed their medical.

Dirar (34) joins from Turkish powerhouse Fenerbahce. The Morrocan-Belgian earlier played for the blue and black between 2008 and 2012. In that periode he played one season together with current head coach Philippe Clement. Afterwards the polyvalent winger moved to Monaco and Fenerbahce. He wore the captain's armband at both teams. Dirar signed a loan deal until the end of the season.

Chong (21) comes from Manchester United. The Dutch U23 international played on loan for Werder Bremen until now. The wing forward is at Jan Breydel for a loan spell until the end of the season.


Philippe Clement: "Club shows ambition in the three competitions we are still playing a role. We have a busy schedule ahead of us with a lot of games, so it was key to strenghten our team after a couple of players left the team. With Dirar and Chong we have two players who should be match ready quite quickly.

Nabil Dirar is a Belgian who already knows our club. He is a versatile player who can play offensively and defensively on the right and left wing. In my talks with Nabil he showed that he is very motivated but also enthusiastic about playing a role in the development of the younger players."

"Chong is a player who can bring more depth in our game, off and on the ball. You can compare him to Diatta and Dennis. Chong and Dirar are both versatile players, something we can really use in this phase of the season. With the signing of our new number nine, who was our top target, the arrival of Denswil and now Dirar and Chong, I believe our squad is good enough to achieve our season goals despite the busy schedule and in this financially challening corona period."
