Sunderland Sign United's McNair And Love

Northern Ireland global McNair, who is targeting regular first football under Moyes, broke through at Man United as a central defender but believes his best position is in midfield.

"Paddy is a young, athletic player who is improving all the time", the former United manager explained to the official Sunderland website.

United wish for Januzaj, who has two years remaining on his contract, to leave only on loan, but the player is thought to want a permanent move elsewhere.

"He's come highly recommended, again a young one, and one that I hope we can improve". Ex-manager David Moyes has now stepped in to sign two of the club's young defenders for Sunderland.

"Also I want to say thank you to all the staff at United who have helped me over the years, from joining as a small boy to playing in the first team".

McNair, who made 27 senior appearances at Old Trafford, is equally versatile with an ability to play in defence and midfield.

The club from the North-East of England had to shell out a reported £5.5 million to seal the double swoop.

Belgium worldwide Januzaj is set to join Sunderland on loan for the season after new manager Mourinho dumped him from Manchester United's first team squad and ordered him to train with the Under-21s.

The Black Cats secured their second and third signing of the summer, having already secured an £8million move for Chelsea's Papy Djilobodji.

The Belgian went to Borussia Dortmund on what was supposed to be a season-long loan last season but did not impress and returned to United in January.

While most eyes will be on Pep Guardiola's team selection for his first game as City boss, David Moyes will also be leading out Sunderland for the first time.
