Adnan Januzaj looks set to remain in the Premier League for the foreseeable future, with the player's agent having revealed Manchester United want him to stay amid rumours he could join Real Sociedad on loan.

The Belgium international, who first broke into the first-team set-up during David Moyes's ill-fated spell in charge, found first-team football rather difficult to come by last season under manager Louis van Gaal and made just eight starts in all competitions.

That frustrating lack of action has inevitably led to fervent speculation with regards to Januzaj's future ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

Rumours of a loan move to La Liga, first mooted in January, have once again resurfaced with recent reports from Spain having gone as far as to suggest the 20-year-old has already met with current Sociedad boss Moyes to discuss such a possibility.

Representative Dirk de Vriese has emphatically rubbished those suggestions, though, confirming Januzaj will stay put as he seeks to establish a glittering reputation at Old Trafford.

Speaking with regards to a potential reunion with Moyes at Anoeta, he told Sport Witness: "This is total nonsense. Adnan is feeling good at Manchester United and they don't want him to leave the club, he is considered still as their biggest talent since many years.

"There was a lot of top teams asking to buy him and a lot of sub-top teams to loan him but he will stay at Manchester United to become a legend in the club."

Januzaj's attempts to re-establish himself as a regular starter for United have been made more difficult still thanks to the recent arrival of Memphis Depay on a four-year contract.

The young forward, who has previously worked with Van Gaal during the latter's second tenure with the Netherlands, helped fire PSV Eindhoven to the Eredivisie title last term and was officially unveiled as the club's first summer signing in a deal believed to be worth in the region of £25m.
