David Moyes Reportedly Interested In Bringing Old Favourite To West Ham

David Moyes is reportedly very keen on bringing an old favourite of his to West Ham. Adnan Januzaj is due to leave Real Sociedad when his contract expires this summer, and if Moyes was to land him it would be the third club where the Belgian has worked under him.

Report: David Moyes interested in signing Adnan Januzaj

Moyes famously gave Adnan Januzaj his first start for Manchester United against Sunderland in 2013, where he ended up scoring two goals in a come from behind win.

Following game, Moyes had this to say about Januzaj;

"I gave Wayne Rooney his Premier League debut, and Ross Barkley, and Adnan is certainly up there with those players in terms of quality.

"As far as debuts go, I would be surprised if even the great players in United's past have shown such promise on day one. It wasn't just the two goals, his whole game was outstanding. We know we've got a really special talent, but we'll keep his feet on the ground.


"He's going to be a top, top player but I had him in the reserves last week. He's a very humble boy, a pleasure to work with. I thought this was the right time to play him, because he's just been so good."

A string of good performances earned Januzaj a regular place in Manchester United match-day squads as well as a new contract for the club and a nomination for BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year.

However, his star quickly began to fall and he was sent on loan to Borussia Dortmund and then to Sunderland where he linked up with David Moyes once more.

His move to Real Sociedad reignited his career, and he has amassed over 100 caps for the club and helped them secure a place in next season's Europa League.


Would a move for Adnan Januzaj be a good one for David Moyes and West Ham?
