Manchester United starlet Adem Ljajic is hoping he will pushing for a place in the first-team squad when he arrives at Old Trafford.
The 17-year-old Serbian officially signed for Sir Alex Ferguson's outfit in December in the same deal which saw Zoran Tosic arrived from Partizan Belgrade.
However, as part of the transfer agreement, Llajic is due to remain with Partizan until January next year.
He has already spent a number of weeks at United's training HQ at Carrington, and he was delighted with the chance to train with the first-team squad.
"The quality in England is very high because you are training with such great players, but the main difference is it's much quicker," Ljajic told the club's official website.
"I really enjoyed it and training with such top players can only help me improve.
"Coming over to England allowed me to see how things worked so I know what to expect when I come here permanently.
"And I hope that when I join in January I will be involved with the first team from the start."
Llajic admits that fellow countryman Nemanja Vidic has already shown him around Manchester.
"It has been great to see him," he said.
"I have spent a lot of time with him whenever I have been over in Manchester and he has shown me around the city.
"It can be hard when you move to a new country and don't know anyone and are yet to learn the language, so it has been fantastic to have him here."
