Work Permit Granted

Work Permit Granted

New signing Nemanja Vidic has had his work permit granted.

Sir Alex Ferguson has made Vidic the first major signing of the Malcolm Glazer era by splashing out £7million on the Serbia defender.

But the 24-year-old former Spartak Moscow star is unlikely to be involved in Sunday's FA Cup tie at Burton Albion.

Ferguson: 'As I keep pointing out, good defenders win you things. In my time we have had people like Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Paul Parker, Denis Irwin, Ronnie Johnson and Jaap Stam.

'This lad is really natural and athletic. I know you need good defenders and that is exactly what this lad is.'

If Vidic is not involved in the Burton tie, he could get a run out in a reserve team fixture against Leeds on January 12, putting him in line for a potential Premiership debut against Manchester City the following weekend or Liverpool on January 22.
