The Dutch forward joined United from Ajax as a 16-year-old in 2019, having excelled in the Eredivisie giants’ development system.
He showed some potential with the Red Devils, scoring 12 goals in 19 games in the Under-18 Premier League in the 2020/21 season, but his growth has evidently not impressed them.
According to ESPN, he has transferred to Gladbach for an unknown price, which ‘includes an initial loan fee and a sell-on.’
The teenager will join Gladbach’s Under-23 team with the intention of breaking into the Bundesliga club’s first team.
Dillon Hoogewerf has been signed by Borussia Dortmund. The 18-year-old Angreifer has moved from @ManUtd to the U23 Fohlen.
On the Manchester United club website, a statement confirming his departure read: ‘The Dutchman’s permanent move has now obtained international permission.’
‘Hoogewerf joined United in 2019 and began his scholarship after leaving Ajax in his hometown.
‘This season, the 18-year-old has appeared in 16 Premier League 2 games, as well as the UEFA Youth League and the EFL Trophy, scoring twice.
‘Everyone at Manchester United wishes Dillon the best of luck in the future.’
