West Bromwich Albion signed Zhang Yuning from Vitesse in 2017 and immediately loaned him to Werder Bremen.

He was supposed to spend two seasons with the Bundesliga outfit, but limited playing time saw the English club recall him and allow the striker to join ADO Den Haag in the summer.

Having spent time with the Dutch club during pre-season, he suffered a ligament tear while on international duty with the China U23 squad in August, which forced him to spend time on the sidelines.

The 21-year-old has now returned to the pitch for the first time since recovering from the injury and was in action for ADO Den Haag 2 during their latest defeat to FC Eindhoven.

He’s now set his sights on representing Alfons Groenendijk’s senior side.

“I had a good first month during the preparation, I just trained with the team, played exhibition games and scored, unfortunately I got injured in China under 23,” Yuning explained to Ado Fans.

“It’s usually hard to get used to a new club and such an injury only makes it more difficult, but the club has supported me intensively and that has helped me a lot.

“Everyone at ADO is very friendly to me and I would like to be successful for this club. I am looking forward for my first match with the senior team.”

After a disappointing last campaign with Werder Bremen Yuning will now be hoping to get regular minutes under his belt with ADO Den Haag this season.

West Brom will be hoping for the same.
