Januzaj, 21, becomes Moyes’ third signing as Sunderland boss after United duo Paddy McNair and Donald Love.

“Adnan needs to come and do the business,” said Moyes. “He will give us a different variation because he can play in two or three different roles, but I have to get him back to the level he was at two years ago.

“He will get plenty of opportunities with us and I believe in him because he’s one of the finest young talents I’ve ever seen, and he was up there with Wayne Rooney when he was an 18-year-old.”

He continued: “I’m looking forward to getting him here and I hope the Sunderland supporters see the real Adnan Januzaj, so we will give him every opportunity do to that in the coming year.

“I hope that he shows that [two goals on his first start at the Stadium of Light] in a Sunderland jersey and score goals for us because we’re going to need him to create them and score them. Adnan will be joining up with the rest of the team in Manchester later today.”

Later, in his news conference, Man United manager Jose Mourinho insisted that he still sees a future at Old Trafford for Januzaj and that he had only sent him on loan to gain more experience.

“He fits in my plans, which is why he’s on loan at a Premier League club,” he said. “If he didn’t fit into my plans then we don’t care about where he’s going. If he doesn’t fit then we don’t care, we send him to Dortmund.

“We care about him and think he’s a talented player. I want to give give him all the conditions to develop and to play well. He is in the right place with a manager that likes him a lot. Hopefully everything will go well for him because we want him back.”
