Tim Weah is ready to show his skills consistently at the club level. The 18-year-old has publicly stated that he’s willing to go on loan when the January transfer window opens around Europe in order to get some playing time.

Weah started the new season on fire for PSG, scoring several goals in the preseason and even notching his first Ligue 1 goal. However, with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe returning from the World Cup, minutes have been non-existent for the American.

He tells Sports Illustrated that he has no regrets about staying with the French champions to try and earn first team minutes, but that the time is right for him to show what he can do.

“In January, I’ll be ready to go on loan and take my talents to another team and see what I can do for the next half of the season.”

The full interview is worth your time as he talks about his decision not to go on loan at the start of the season, his father’s influence on his career, and more.

Weah showed his talent in the USMNT’s 4-2 loss against Colombia with a fantastic assist on Bobby Wood’s goal. Hopefully, now with his willingness to go on loan and play, we’ll be seeing a lot more of these moments.
