Zoran Tosic, who was given a work permit last week which enables him to join United in January, has been seen out with a United shirt. Following Dimitar Berbatov signing a United shirt before he’d officially sealed the deal with the club, Tosic has gone one step further and actually looks set to try it out the shirt for size.

“I was told that about 10 days ago that Manchester had sent a request for my work permit which is now granted,” Tosic said. “I know nothing more, or what will be the next steps, but I suppose that I have a few games left for Partizan.”
