Sunderland are plotting a move for Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj.
The 20-year-old burst onto the scene in the 2013-14 season with two goals at the Stadium of Light.
However, he hasn’t really kicked on from that point and with Louis van Gaal spoilt for choice in the advanced midfield areas, he is considering sending the Belgium international out on loan.
Dick Advocaat is desperate to add some attacking threat to his squad after losing Connor Wickham to Crystal Palace and Leroy Fer’s failed medical.
And the Dutchman, who is starting his first full term in charge, is hoping the Red Devils will lend them their talented youngster for the campaign.
Januzaj has scored for times in 56 first-team appearances at Old Trafford.
