Everton linked with move for Januzaj

Everton are rumoured to be considering a late deadline day move for Man Utd winger Adnan Januzaj.

The Belgian international won the club's Young Player of the Year last season but has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford following the big money arrival of Angel di Maria.

Roberto Martinez has previously said he is keen on signing a forward this window to replace the injured Leon Osman and Steven Pienaar, though stressed he would only be willing to do a deal for the right price.

The Manchester Evening News claim that Everton were planning on a permanent move for Januzaj in the summer but are considering a loan move on deadline day.

Despite his lack of first-team action Utd are unwilling to let the 19-year-old leave and only last week blocked a move to French side PSG.

Therefore Januzaj would have to push for a move in order for Utd to agree to a loan, which at this stage looks unlikely. As ever on deadline day though things can move quickly as the clock ticks by.

*UPDATE* BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone says he has spoken to his sources at Man Utd who say there is "no chance" of Januzaj leaving. So that's that then!

"Adnan Januzaj will not be leaving Manchester United today. Rumours had been growing on Merseyside that Everton were looking to sign the Belgian on loan for the remainder of the season. However, United sources have said there is 'no chance' of that happening."
