A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Wout Weghorst is a professional footballer who operates as a centre-forward for Besiktas, on loan from Burnley and the Netherlands national team. He is having an encouraging campaign in Turkey as he has managed to find some consistency in terms of his productivity in front of the opponent’s goal.

Weghorst has banged in ten goals and grabbed four assists in 21 matches for the Turkish club this season on all fronts. The 30-year-old has led the line relatively well based on his average of 3.3 shots, 1.1 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Turkish Super Lig. However, he has been a bit untidy when distributing the ball from the back, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 69.5% in league football (stats via whoscored).

Wout Weghorst: Early Life

Weghorst was born in Borne, Netherlands and came through the youth ranks of Dutch football, playing for clubs such as Willem, FC Emmen, Heracles Almelo before going on to feature for AZ Alkmaar in 2016.

His first move away from his homeland came just two years later when he joined VfL Wolfsburg. In 2022, Burnley decided to take a chance on Weghorst but he struggled to give a good account of himself in the Premier League.

The Clarets opted to loan the Dutch striker out to Besiktas last summer. Weghorst has so far enjoyed a productive loan spell in Turkey.
