Adnan Januzaj set for early Manchester United return following reports that the Reds have recalled him from his season-long loan at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
Januzaj has made 12 appearances for the Bundesliga club, which has included only three starts. His six league outings have all been as a substitute and he has not featured since a Europa League defeat by PAOK Salonika on 10 December.
United have requested the 20-year-old Belgium international forward’s return because of a lack of games.
According to The Times, the German club have agreed to the termination and the 20-year-old is destined to return to Manchester in the coming days.
The paperwork is not expected to take long and an official announcement is likely to be released on Thursday afternoon.
Januzaj whose Old Trafford contract runs until 2018 played four times for United in August, scoring the winner at Aston Villa.
