Sporting Lisbon have confirmed that they have signed Manchester United winger Nani on loan.

The Portuguese international left Sporting for United in 2007, but has now returned to his former club for the 2014-15 campaign.

It is understood that the deal will see Argentine left-back Marcos Rojo move to United, with that deal due to be completed tomorrow.

Nani, 27, signed a long-term deal with United just last summer, but has been deemed surplus to requirements by new boss Louis van Gaal.
