Manchester United have confirmed the loan signing of midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on loan until the end of the 2022/23 season.

The Red Devils were forced into the market late in the January transfer window after it was confirmed that Christian Eriksen is likely to miss up to four months of action due to an ankle injury.

As 90min confirmed, the club entered talks with Sabitzer over a potential move to Old Trafford on loan for the remainder of the season on Tuesday, and were able to get the deal through before the 12pm deadline after receiving an extension.

Speaking to the club's official website after completing the move, Sabitzer said: “Sometimes in life you have to make quick and important decisions. From the moment I heard about this opportunity I knew it was right for me. I am a competitive player; I want to win and help the club achieve its aims this season. 

“I feel that I am at my peak as a player, and that I can contribute a lot of experience and energy to the squad. I am excited to start with my new team-mates and manager and to show my qualities to Manchester United fans.”
