Sunderland snap up third Man United star as Moyes overhaul continues

Sunderland have announced the signing of Adnan Januzaj on loan from Manchester United for the 2016/17 season.

The Belgian starlet, who broke through at Old Trafford under now Black Cats boss David Moyes during the 2013/14 campaign, becomes the third player to move from the Red Devils to the North East side following a double deal for defenders Donald Love and Paddy McNair earlier this week.

Januzaj spent some of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund, but the 21-year-old returned early after failing to settle in Germany.

Speaking to Sunderland’s official website, Moyes talked up the deal, claiming that he hopes to get the best from the youngster:

“Adnan will give us a different variation. I have to get him back to the level he played at two years ago.

“He will get every opportunity to do the business. I’m hoping the Sunderland fans will see the real Januzaj.”

Januzaj’s future has been the subject of much debate in recent days, with Jose Mourinho’s desire to offload him well-known.

The arrivals of Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan cluttered an already well-populated attacking midfield armoury at Man United, and the silky playmaker stands a better chance of playing regularly at the Stadium of Light.
