David Moyes has confirmed the signing of Adnan Januzaj on a season-long loan by Sunderland.
The Belgian winger struggled for game time under Van Gaal, whereas he flourished when Moyes was in charge at Old Trafford.
Januzaj also had an unsuccessful loan with Dortmund, before returning to United. With Sunderland prepping to face Manchester City this weekend, Moyes announced the addition of the winger.
“Adnan will give us a different variation,” Moyes said.
“I have to get him back to the level he played at two years ago – he will get every opportunity to do the business. I’m hoping the Sunderland fans will see the real Adnan Januzaj.”
The 21-year-old winger will go straight into Sunderland’s squad to face City on Saturday, along with fellow new recruits Papy Djilobodji, Paddy McNair and Donald Love.
Januzaj has so far made 50 Premier League appearances for United, with his first professional goals coming against his new club at the Stadium of Light in October 2013.
