Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj has quashed any speculation about his future at the club by putting pen to paper on a new five-year deal, which sees him remain at the club until 2018.

The 18-year-old has been thrust into the limelight with some classy performances since his competitive debut in this season's Community Shield, most recently scoring a stunning brace against Sunderland.

Red Devils' manager David Moyes has expressed his delight at securing the Belgian-born winger's signature.

He told the official Manchester United website: "I'm delighted that Adnan has committed his future to United. He is an outstanding talent and has impressed me consistently since I came to United in July.

"It’s great that he recognises that this club, with its tradition for developing young players and giving them a chance on the biggest stage, is the best place for him to be."

The former Anderlecht prospect has spoken of his elation at signing a new deal at Old Trafford.

He said: "It’s a great thrill to be able to sign for Manchester United. Since arriving here I have always felt like this was the right club for me.

"I want to work hard now and establish myself as a Manchester United player."

Januzaj's rise to prominence has alerted several international sides to his availability, including Belgium, Serbia and England, with his father hinting that he could commit to the Three Lions in the near future.
