Adnan Januzaj has insisted that he is focused on making the grade at Manchester United this season.
The 20-year-old attacker had been tipped for a loan move away from Old Trafford after finding first-team opportunities hard to come by upon Louis van Gaal’s arrival last term.
But Januzaj was given a surprise start against Aston Villa last Friday and scored the only goal of the game as the Red Devils won 1-0 to maintain their 100% start to the Premier League season.
And he is now determined to stay at United and fight for his place while he continues his development.
“I’m happy to play and give everything for the manager and the club,” the Belgian international is quoted as saying by United’s official Twitter page.
“This year is another year and I’m ready to get back to my best and do everything I can to improve.”
Sunderland had been credited with an interest in Januzaj, who scored four goals in 35 appearances for United after breaking into David Moyes’s side in the 2013-14 campaign.
