Manchester United winger Tahith Chong has signed a new contract until 2022.

Chong, who joined United from Feyenoord in 2016, has represented the Netherlands at six youth international levels up to Under-21 and has made 14 appearances for the first team.

The 20-year-old's most recent United outing came as a half-time substitute in the 5-0 Europa League win over Club Brugge in February.
