Manchester United have agreed an £8million deal to sign Serbian midfielder Zoran Tosic.
The 21-year-old left winger became a target for leading European clubs when he played a key role in Serbia’s run to the semi-finals of last year’s European Under 21 Championships.
Now United are ready to sign Tosic from Partizan Belgrade in January, subject to a successful work permit application next week.
The Home Office, who have appointed former England winger Chris Waddle to the panel looking at the application, demands that non-EU nationals must have played in three-quarters of their country’s matches in the last year and Tosic has appeared in only six of Serbia’s previous 14games.
United will argue he is set to become a Serbia regular.
Dead-ball specialist Tosic will then aim to prove he can be the successor to Ryan Giggs on the left.
Any of the forum's resident Serbians care to shed any light on this story?
May be tell us a bit about him as I'm sure few of us wouldn't have heard much.
BTW, I'm sure this can be moved to the Transfer Speculation thread if nothing comes of it.
