Manchester United have lost the services of youngster Indy Boonen – the winger has moved to Belgian side KV Oostende.
Boonen was highly rated during his time at Old Trafford but rejected the offer of a new contract. He posted confirmation of his move on his Twitter profile today, where he was pictured holding the shirt of his new club.
From the MEN:
Academy chief Kieran McKenna hailed the 19-year-old as ‘one of the best finishers in the group’ and Jose Mourinho certainly took note after inviting Boonen to train with the first team on a number of occasions.
But with huge competition for places at academy level, let alone in the first team where even Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford struggle for starts, the forward has decided to leave United after nearly four years at the club.
Boonen previously worked with KVO boss Gert Verheyen while playing for Belgium’s under-19s and now has the chance to prove himself in the country’s top division after signing a three-year contract at the Versluys Arena.
