Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed that he is certain that Marouane Fellaini will succeed at Old Trafford.

The Belgian powerhouse signed for Manchester United on transfer deadline day to cap what had otherwise been a quiet summer for Moyes.

The new man at Old Trafford had only managed to bring in Guillermo Varela before Fellaini after failing to sign the creative midfielder United so desperately want.

A deal for Ander Herrera fell through after the club failed to agree with Athletic Bilbao over a fee for the young Spaniard, leading to more criticism.

Fellaini eventually signed for £27.5m, a fee which has brought criticism with it due to the fact that he could have been signed for much less had United moved a couple of weeks earlier.

However, Moyes has no interest in talking about the price of the transfer, instead focusing on what should be a fantastic signing for the Premier League champions.

The Scotsman has praised Fellaini's wide range of attributes as well as announcing his delight with the amount of options the Belgian brings with him.

Moyes told Sky Sports News: "Marouane is not someone you want to be playing against.

"He has attributes other people don't have. And with those qualities he has, I am sure he will be a big player for Manchester United."

"He can play higher up the field if we need him to, just behind a main striker.

"He can play as a defensive or holding midfield player. In fact he is comfortable in any position in the middle of the field.

"It was definitely a position where people would say we were short, not just of numbers, with the likes of Paul Scholes retiring and Darren Fletcher not being ready to come back just now. I am glad we have got him."
