Manchester United have allowed Zoran Tosic to join Bundesliga side Cologne on loan until the end of the season.
The winger has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford since arriving from Partizan Belgrade in January 2009 in a double swoop that included Adem Ljajic, although the Red Devils cancelled the Ljajic deal last month.
The 22-year-old played just 34 minutes of football in all competitions for United last term while this season has seen him fare little better having made just two substitute appearances in the Carling Cup all campaign.
Many believe that the loan move will spell the end of the Serbia international's future at the Theatre of Dreams, but Tosic is determined to return.
"I don't believe I have had my final say at Manchester United," he said.
"Hopefully my performances with Cologne will be my ticket back to Old Trafford."
Cologne currently occupy 13th place in the German top flight and find themselves just four points off the relegation places.
