LONDON, August 5- Sunderland look set to pull off a major coup by securing the services of Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj on a season-long loan.

Black Cats boss Dick Advocaat and United counterpart Louis Van Gaal have a good working relationship, and the two clubs have enjoyed mutually beneficial loan spells in the past, including deals for Danny Welbeck and Johnny Evans.

Januzaj, a Belgian international at the ripe age of 20, is reportedly ‘ready’ for regular game time and, after his breakthrough season under David Moyes, much was expected from the youngster, but he featured sparingly last season under Van Gaal.

It has since been reported that if Van Gaal cannot offer the former Anderlecht trainee regular playing-time, then Januzaj will seek a temporary move away from Old Trafford.

His agent, Dirk de Vriese, said in June that the club intended to keep his client, despite rumours of him being unsettled.

“Adnan is feeling good at Manchester United and they don’t want him to leave the club,” De Vriese told Sport Witness.

“He is considered still as their biggest talent since many years.

“There was a lot of top teams asking to buy him and a lot of sub-top teams to loan him but he will stay at Manchester United to become a legend in the club.”

However, rumours of Pedro’s imminent arrival at the Red Devils has seen speculation further intensify that Januzaj will indeed depart on a loan deal, with Sunderland seemingly the preferred destination.
