Mame Biram Diouf is poised to make his Manchester United debut next month after finally being granted a work permit.
Sir Alex Ferguson signed the 22-year-old striker from Molde in the summer before allowing him to return to the Norwegian club on loan. Diouf is unavailable for the FA Cup third-round tie with Leeds at Old Trafford on January 3, but Ferguson feels he has a promising future ahead of him.
"If you're talking about value then you can look at our young boy Diouf," he said recently.
"He's been training with us and is looking very exciting.
"That's the kind of situation we're good at, finding young players who can develop at the club, and at 22 years of age he's looking very good."
