Julian Brandt: The Germany under-19 international has signed for Bayer Leverkuse

The 17-year-old had also been linked with German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, but he will now join Leverkusen in January, despite initially agreeing to make the switch at the end of the season.

Brandt has signed a five-and-a-half-year contract with the Bundesliga outfit and Voller thinks that his capture will pay dividends as he anticipates a bright future for the Germany Under-19 international.

"Julian Brandt is one of the most gifted youngsters in the German game," he told Deutsche Presseagentur.

"His signature is a great investment for the future of Bayer Leverkusen.

"Julian will be with the first-team squad of our club for the training camp in Portugal in January 2014 to enable him to experience life with the professionals as early as possible."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
