Adnan Januzaj has been named Manchester United's Player of the Month for October.

The Red Devils starlet, who recently signed a new five-year deal at Old Trafford, has been in sensational form for the the Premier League champions over the first few months of the season.

Manchester United moved quickly to tie Januzaj down on a new long-term contract, after the 18-year-old put in a number of impressive performances.

The attacking midfielder's brace against Sunderland has been the highlight of the teenager's season so far.

Januzaj beat off competition from Manchester United teammates Wayne Rooney, who won the award in September, and David de Gea to win the Player of the Month award by claiming 42 per cent of the vote.

“I'm really pleased to win this award, especially as it is voted for by the fans, who have been very supportive of me. So, thank you for voting for me," said Januzaj.

“It's good to be recognised for your performances on the pitch but I realise that I have to work hard and keep progressing as a player.

"I will try to contribute to the team whenever I play and hopefully play my part in a successful season.”

Januzaj is likely to feature in Manchester United's next game against Premier League leaders Arsenal, as he was rested for the Red Devils' Champions League clash against Real Sociedad.
