After growing speculation surrounding his future, Adnan Januzaj appears ready to commit to Manchester United, as Paul Collins reports in the Daily Mail.

The exciting 18-year-old, who gained increased exposure with a stunning brace against Sunderland, is out of contract next summer.

Collins uses quotes given by Januzaj to Kosovo-based broadcaster KTV, in which he outlines his intention to remain where he is:

I am happy at Manchester United and I want to commit myself 100 per cent in every game to do my best. 

I want to help Manchester United win the Premier League and become the best player in the world.

This will clearly come as a huge relief to United fans, who had seen the amount of interest from other clubs steadily mount in tabloids, per the Daily Mail.

With United having endured such a frustrating summer, with multiple transfer targets slipping through their fingers, Januzaj's emergence has been a tonic for fans and a substantial boost to David Moyes.

If there's one area United have been struggling for consistency this season, it's on the flanks.

Both Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia have been unreliable thus far, with no goals and just one assist in 10 Premier League games between them. They have also created just 10 chances between them, a tally Patrice Evra surpasses on his own, according to WhoScored

Both wingers were particularly frustrating in United's biggest match of the season away at Manchester City, struggling to make any impression in what was an emphatic defeat.

Given his fast start and the lack of form of the others, there's no reason why Januzaj shouldn't be given a prolonged run in the team up until Christmas. With relatively small exposure, he still possesses an unpredictable element that will leave defenders guessing at how best to contain him.

United have always had such a rich heritage of wingers, from the recent years of Cristiano Ronaldo to David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and all the way back to the distinguished talent of George Best.

While it's far too early to even whisper Januzaj's name alongside some of those names, United fans will be delighted to hear of his desire to stayand he's certainly at the right club for exciting wingers.

Now there's just the small matter of emulating some of those other greats to grace United's flanks.
