Amad is reportedly keen on reviving his cancelled loan move to Feyenoord.

Voetball Primeur report the Manchester United wonderkid wants to move to the Dutch side in January.

Feyenoord won the race to sign Amad in August amid competition from Premier League and Championship clubs.

Then 24 hours before the move was set to go through, Amad suffered an injury which prevented the switch from going ahead.

Amad is now recovered and training with United’s first team.

But his chances of playing time seem slim, as he has not yet made a matchday squad.

Amad is in a similar situation to Anthony Elanga, who also may need a loan move to progress his career.

Voetball Primeur report Amad is impressed by Feyenoord’s style of play and considers that he can get regular playing time and have an important role.

Feyenoord are currently fourth in the Eredivisie and can move into second if they win a game in hand, which would put them just three points behind leaders Ajax.


The report adds that it is unclear what United’s intentions are regarding Amad.

It’s likely the club are happy to loan him out, but the view could conceivably change in terms of pushing him towards a loan move in England.

What Amad wants should also matter, and if he is keen on the loan to Feyenoord, then it would make a lot of sense for United to grant it.

The Dutch league is a technical league and of a good standard, ideal for the young winger to progress his career right now.

Amad is likely to get game time with United’s under-23s over the coming weeks.

AFCON complication

One complication ahead for Amad is the African Nations Cup, which is set to be played through January.

This may make it trickier to sort out a loan move, so United and Feyenoord may want to consider reviving the previous arrangement in advance of the tournament.

With contact already established between the two clubs, the AFCON complication is one extra reason why a Feyenoord loan makes sense.
