Manchester United have confirmed that Adnan Januzaj will return to the club after Borussia Dortmund agreed to end his loan deal early.
Januzaj joined Dortmund on a season-long loan deal last summer but he found opportunities hard to come by at the Bundesliga side.
Owing to a lack of game time, Man United have made the decision to bring the Belgian back to Old Trafford:

Januzaj will be clear to play against Sheffield United in the FA Cup on Saturday as he was registered before 5pm.
However, the youngster has not played since December 10th and Louis van Gaal may elect to give him some minutes on the pitch for United’s U21 side, who play Reading on Monday, instead.
Januzaj cannot be loaned out to another team as he has played for both Dortmund and United this term. He will have to force his way back into van Gaal’s thinking but it will be good to have another option up top as United have been subpar going forward for the majority of the campaign.
