Manchester United have recalled Adnan Januzaj from his season-long loan at Borussia Dortmund.

United have requested the 20-year-old Belgium international forward’s return because of a lack of games.

Januzaj has made 12 appearances for the Bundesliga club, which has included only three starts.

His six league outings have all been as a substitute and he has not featured since a Europa League defeat by PAOK Salonika on 10 December.

Januzaj played four times for United in August, scoring the winner at Aston Villa.

His Old Trafford contract runs until 2018.

Liverpool have signed Red Star Belgrade midfielder Marko Grujic for £5.1m on a four-year contract.

The 19-year-old will return to the Serbian club on loan and join up with the Premier League side on 1 July.

“I’m very excited and so proud to be here,” said Grujic, who won the Under-20 World Cup with Serbia in 2015.

The Reds outbid Anderlecht and Stuttgart and saw off interest from Russian sides CSKA Moscow and Zenit St Petersburg.

Grujic, who has also represented his country at under-21 level, has scored five goals in 22 games for Serbian Super Liga leaders Red Star this season.

He is Jurgen Klopp’s first signing as Liverpool manager
since his appointment in October.

“He’s a good boy, a young boy but plays an important role at the moment at Red Star, who are the best team in Serbia,” said the German.

“He’s a tall boy, but quick and good at technical things. He can play passes and can dribble.”

Ex-Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has appeared at a tribunal hearing for her constructive dismissal case against the Premier League champions.

She is suing the club for constructive dismissal and breach of contract.

The preliminary hearing, held in private, took place at the London South Employment Tribunal in Croydon.

After the hearing, Mary O’Rourke QC, representing Carneiro, said no settlement had been reached and a date had been fixed for the next hearing.

There is a separate but connected legal claim against former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho for alleged discrimination.

How did we reach this point?
