Surprise new contenders to sign Belgian wonderkid.
Aston Villa have emerged as surprise new contenders to sign highly-rated Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj on loan this January, according to the Sun.
The talented 19-year-old has fallen out of favour at United this season, despite enjoying a highly impressive breakthrough year last season under previous manager David Moyes.
Louis van Gaal’s big-name signings such as Angel Di Maria have halted Januzaj’s progress in the first-team, and he may now leave on loan to ensure he is playing regularly.
Villa are desperate to sign new players this winter and move away from the bottom of the table, and hope a deal can be done for the promising Belgian wide-man.
