Teden Mengi set to join Birmingham City on loan
Teden Mengi is reportedly set to join Birmingham City on loan for the remainder of the season.
Birmingham live report that Mengi is “very close” to securing a loan transfer to the Championship club.
Mengi made it to the Champions League last month under new boss Ralf Rangnick, replacing against Young Boys, wowing fans.
This loan transfer is a good opportunity for Mengi after having had the misfortune of missing a transfer this summer.
A player with great potential
Mengi had a championship loan spell last season with County Derby, which has seen its ups and downs, as you would expect for an 18-year-old playing in a cut-throat league in a side-by-side squad. difficulty.
His move was cut short by injury and although he was fortunate enough to feature in United’s first team in the pre-season, his performances have been mixed.
Upon his return to the Under-23s, Mengi was excellent, regaining his lacked form after the lockdown in 2020 before his Derby loan.
Mengi is thus much better equipped for his loan to Birmingham thanks to his performances in United’s Under-23s and in the UEFA Youth League.
His departure leaves United a bit light at center-back at youth level, although there is a chance that Will Fish will be recalled from his Stockport County loan.
Mengi could be relegated to Birmingham, who are 18th in the league, but a winning streak could just as easily see them launch into the playoff race.
Join a United teammate
Birmingham have enjoyed early success this season with young United Tahith Chong, who joined the club on loan.
Chong impressed before injuring himself and returned for treatment. He is said to be getting closer to a comeback with Blues boss Lee Bowyer saying club media he’s ahead of schedule.
It might not be long before Mengi and Chong line up again, and after the disappointment of not getting a loan last summer, the young center-back will be delighted that he has already struck a deal.
