Adnan Januzaj on Young Sports Personality of the Year shortlist

Adnan Januzaj has been named on the shortlist for the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award after breaking through into the first team at Manchester United.

The 18-year-old is qualified to play for Belgium, Albania, Turkey, Serbia or England, once he has lived in the country for five years. He has made 10 appearances for United this season, scoring twice.

He is likely to face stiff competition from Jessica Judd, the 18-year-old middle distance runner who competed in the 800 metres at the world championships this year.

The top three contenders will be announced live on Blue Peter on Thursday 12 December and the winner will be announced live at BBC Sports Personality of the Year on Sunday 15 December.
