Manchester United have gained a work permit for Serbian international winger Zoran Tosic.

Reports emerged earlier this week suggesting United were lining up a move for the 21-year-old left-winger.

Now it has been confirmed by United that they have indeed won their battle to get a permit for Tosic - who had not played enough games to automatically qualify to play in England.

A United delegation, including Sir Alex Ferguson, attended the work-permit hearing in Sheffield and they successfully argued Tosic should be allowed to play in the Premier League.

The Partizan Belgrade wide-man now looks set to arrive at Old Trafford when - although details of the deal have not been disclosed.

United have issued a statement confirming that they had gained the permit but no deal for the player would be completed until 1st January, when the transfer window re-opens.

Tosic, who has 12 caps to his name, will become the second Serbian at United, joining fellow countryman Nemanja Vidic.

It is also believed that the Tosic deal could also include Adem Ljajic. The 19-year-old Partizan starlet has been on trial at the club recently and is understood to have impressed Ferguson and his staff.
