The Dutch striker signed for the Reds from the Championship side on loan until the end of the season, with the 30-year-old having impressed with Besiktas in the first half of the campaign. Weghorst registered nine goals and four assists in 18 appearances for the Turkish club before arriving at Old Trafford.
The Netherlands international returns to the Premier League after being unable to help prevent Burnley being relegated to the Championship last season. After joining from Wolfsburg last January, Weghorst only managed two goals for the struggling Turf Moor side.
Weghorst, who claimed an assist for Jay Rodriguez in the Clarets&apos 1-1 draw with United in February, is desperate to prove himself in the English top-flight, and also hopes that he can quickly adapt to Erik ten Hag&aposs system.
Speaking to club media about his time in the Premier League, he said. “For me, it was not done. It was not finished. It didnt work out the first time as I hoped and Im really hungry to show myself, to help the team.
“Of course, we are on a really good track now. The last couple of weeks, months actually, its going really positive here and I just want to contribute and give my best and give my all for the club and I try to be a part of the successful way we are going.
The Dutchman managed 70 goals in 144 appearances for Wolfsburg, while also scoring 45 times in 86 matches for AZ Alkmaar prior to his move to the Bundesliga. Discussing his thirst for goals, the 30-year-old insisted that he would work hard in order to contribute for the Reds.
He continued: “Of course, I want to score goals here. Im a striker and I think every striker knows it; you are living for scoring goals.
“Thats the thing we have been working all week for to get it done in the weekend and thats definitely something I want to achieve here also. Thats also what I meant with being part of it and contributing. Of course, for me as a striker, at the end, its also all about goals.”
