For the remainder of the season, Manchester United has loaned out Dutch striker Wout Weghorst.
The 30-year-old Burnley player was out on loan to Besiktas in Turkey, but he ended his stay there early to sign with Old Trafford.
In 16 league games for Besiktas, Weghorst scored eight goals, dished out four assists, and added a single goal in two Turkish Cup contests.
Weghorst said, "I feel honored to be joining Manchester United.
"I've faced off against the team in the past, so getting the chance to don the fabled red shirt is an incredible feeling. I've been impressed with United's growth this year under Erik ten Hag, and I can't wait to start doing my part to help the team achieve its goals. " .
Burnley is paying Besiktas €2.825m (roughly £2.5m), while Manchester United is paying Burnley a loan fee of about £2.6m.
As part of the agreement, the Red Devils will pay Weghorst's salary in full, with no option or requirement to purchase.
I can promise to give the club everything for as long as I am here, Weghorst continued, "No matter what happens in the upcoming months.
"I want to thank everyone who helped me get this far. Now I'm looking forward to meeting my new teammates and starting to work with them right away. ".
The most recent goal Weghorst scored was on January 7 in a 2-1 victory over Kasimpasa, and following the game, he appeared to wave goodbye to the Besiktas supporters.
He moved from German club Wolfsburg to Burnley in January of last year for £12 million, but he only managed to score twice as the Clarets were demoted to the Championship.
Weghorst played for the Netherlands in the 2022 World Cup, and his two late goals against Argentina tied their thrilling quarterfinal match at 2-2 before the Netherlands lost on penalties.
Following Cristiano Ronaldo's departure, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has bolstered his attacking lineup with Weghorst.
