After the agreed terms and transfers fees for Serbian duo Tosic and Ljajic had been announced, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed we will not be bringing in any new targets during the January transfer window.
“Tosic joins us immediately, his work permit is through; Ljajic will join us next year,” said Ferguson. “Tosic is a young wide left player. We like wide players at this club. We’ve been watching him for over a year. Our scout in that area has been telling us about him for quite a while. He’s now a regular in the Serbian national team. Hopefully he does well. We’ll give him time. He’s not played since December 10 so he’ll need time to adjust and get used to the tempo of our game and also the training. That’s the end of the transfer business for Manchester United this season. There definitely won’t be anything else in January.”
