Man Utd’s Januzaj Joins Dortmund on a Season-Long Loan

Manchester United have loaned midfielder Adnan Januzaj to Borussia Dortmund until 30 July, 2016.

Januzaj, who will wear the shirt No, 9 at the Westfalenstadion, has signed a season-long loan with the German club after making two appearances for United this season with a match-winning goal away to Aston Villa on 14 August.

“Adnan is a highly gifted and technically gifted player who completes our attacking department,” Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said.

Januzaj added: “Borussia Dortmund are a great club, the fans here are supposed to be really incredible. I want to achieve great things with the team.


The Belgium international spent 6 years at home team Anderlecht, before moving to Manchester United in March 2011.

He made his first-team debut two years ago against Wigan athletics and has since scored 5 goals in 47 league matches for United.

He signed a new five-year contract with the Premier League club in October 2013.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have sold German midfielder Oliver Kirch to relegated SC Paderborn.

The 34-year-old joined Dortmund from Kaiserslautern in summer 2012 and made 24 league appearances for the 2011 and 2012 Bundesliga champions.

“We thank Oliver for his commitment and wish you all the best in the future.”
