Adnan Januzaj has joined Borussia Dortmund on a season-long loan from Manchester United.
The young Belgium international was the first Reds player to score in the Barclays Premier League this season, when he netted the only goal in the 1-0 win at Aston Villa. He will now spend the rest of the campaign gaining some valuable experience in the Bundesliga.
Januzaj told the German club’s website: “Borussia Dortmund are a great club. The fans here are supposed to be really incredible and I want to achieve great things with the team.”
Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc said: “Adnan is a highly gifted and technically gifted player who completes our attacking department.”
Januzaj has made 60 first-team appearances for United so far, since making his debut against Wigan Athletic in the 2013 Community Shield. He has notched five goals, including a memorable double in a 2-1 win at Sunderland on his first start in the senior side.
The attacking midfielder inherited the famous no.11 shirt following Ryan Giggs’ retirement, but he will wear no.9 in Borussia Dortmund’s colours.
Everyone at Manchester United would like to wish Adnan good luck for his spell in Germany.
