Adnan Januzaj put an end to all the rumours spreading around his future by agreeing a new five-year deal, which would see the player at Manchester United until 2018.

Manchester United boss David Moyes will be pleased to have agreed terms with the 18-year-old, which will also be good news for Manchester United fans who worried about another Paul Pogba situation happening again.

After standing out in a lacklustre United team by scoring two in three appearances and, with his current performances, he could well be considered as a key player creating an impressive amount of chances each game. 

David Moyes told reporters: "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.

"His balance, poise and ability to beat players is truly exceptional for a boy of his age.

"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 18-year-old added: "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.

"This season has been great for me - going on the pre-season tour, making my debut in the Community Shield win at Wembley and then breaking into the team at Sunderland - it's like a dream. I want to work hard now and establish myself as a Manchester United player."

Not only has his club career been under question but after scoring two goals on his debut for United, several international teams declared their interest in having Januzaj represent them. England were one of the most spoken about it throughout the week, as well as some of Europe's elite.

Abedin Januzaj (Adnan's father) spoke about his son's international future to Kosovo-based broadcaster KTV saying: "I hear an official from the Albanian FA said they talked to me eight months ago, which is a blatant lie.

"They did a show called 'Patriot or Traitor' for my son and FSHF said they called him up. That is not true. They are not professionals," he said, in a transcript published by the Daily Telegraph.

"I am not closing the doors to Albania, because we are Albanians. However, they are closing the doors to themselves. I only deal with professionals on the issue.

"(My son) won't be engaged with Belgium because he is focused at United. They wanted him, the coach, for the game against Croatia. But, I don't like their approach either."

On England, the senior Januzaj added: "I know Roy Hodgson said he would consider having Adnan in the English squad in the future.

"But, as I said for Albania and Belgium, it is not something we are not considering right now. Our full potential will be focused in doing well with Manchester United."
