Januzaj joins Black Cats on loan


Adnan Januzaj has joined Sunderland on a season-long loan from Manchester United.

Januzaj worked under David Moyes during his time at Old Trafford and he will be reunited with his former manager after agreeing to join the Black Cats for the 2016-17 season.

"Adnan will give us a different variation," Moyes told reporters at Friday's press conference.

"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 Adnan Januzaj."

Having struggled for game time under Louis van Gaal, Januzaj spent most of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund.

Despite allowing him to leave on loan, United manager Jose Mourinho has said the winger will be returning to Old Trafford.

"He fits in my plans. That is why he is on loan at a Premier League club. If he doesn't fit in my plans, I don't care where he is going, I just send him to Borussia Dortmund where he didn't play one match," Mourinho said.

"He is talented. But in the same squad as Martial, Memphis, Young etc, it could mean not many matches. We cannot be selfish.

"We have to think about the player. Let him play well. See him every week in this country. He is with a manager who likes him a lot but we want him back."
