Manchester United forward Adnan Januzaj has appeared to dismiss claims he is set to join Sunderland on a season-long loan.
A report from MailOnline suggested on Thursday that Sunderland were confident of wrapping up a loan move for the Belgian.
The deal is said to be dependent on Barcelona attacker Pedro’s expected arrival at Old Trafford.
However, Januzaj laughed off the claims through a post on his official Twitter account:

Although one can see the merits of a loan move for Januzaj, it is good to see him putting the rumours to bed.
It appears he will be staying at United, so he will need to prepare himself for a big year.
Januzaj has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and he has a battle on his hands to force his way back into the starting XI. He should, however, have more opportunities to impress now that United are back in the Champions League.
