Manchester United’s busiest area of transfer business this summer was the outgoing loan market.

United sent 14 players out on season long loan deals this summer and it could have been more.

Teden Mengi and Matej Kovar were unlucky not to find clubs, as was Amad, who saw his move to Feyenoord break down at the last minute due to injury.

Here is a look at how the 14 players have fared since making their moves away to hopefully play regular football…

Nathan Bishop: Mansfield

Goalkeeper Nathan Bishop moved on loan to League Two side Mansfield Town.

Bishop has played regularly since joining, making six appearances to date. He is yet to keep a clean sheet, conceding 10 goals in total.

Reece Devine: St Johnstone

Devine has had a great experience already, featuring as a starter in a Europa League qualifier against Galatasaray.

The defender has made six appearances in total so far, three of which have been as a starter, recently returning to the side and keeping a clean sheet against St Mirren.

Tahith Chong: Birmingham City

Chong has been the unexpected success story among Manchester United’s loanees so far.

He has won rave reviews from Birmingham fans, playing both out wide and in a more central midfield role.

The 21-year-old has made four starts to date and has one assist so far.

Will Fish: Stockport County

A long pre-season in the National League has meant Fish has only played one competitive match for Stockport so far.

He impressed in the pre-season friendlies, winning a man of the match award against a Fleetwood Town XI.

Di’Shon Bernard: Hull City

Bernard has had to battle his way into the Hull side after beginning as a back-up. Missing a decisive penalty in a shootout defeat on his debut was unfortunate.

The 20-year-old defender has started the last two league games and kept a clean sheet against Bournemouth at the weekend in a 0-0 draw.

Facundo Pellistri: Alaves

So far it is more of the same for Pellistri at Alaves. He featured as a substitute in the first two games before starting the most recent match against Valencia.

Pellistri’s biggest problem is Alaves are a poor side and he does not see much of the ball. United may have to consider a different loan in January.

Axel Tuanzebe: Aston Villa

Tuanzebe has made two starts so far for Villa including his first Premier League start for them last weekend in the 1-1 draw with Brentford.


An injury to Ezri Konsa could ensure Tuanzebe gets a run of games in September and a chance to stake his claim.

Ethan Galbraith: Doncaster Rovers

Galbraith has been a ray of hope in a poor Doncaster Rovers team so far.

The midfielder has looked excellent for the League One side in his four appearances. Unfortunately Rovers are yet to win a game and if there is a managerial change it could be an obstacle for him.

Ethan Laird: Swansea City

After missing United’s pre-season with injury, Laird did well to secure a Championship loan to Swansea.

Playing under the manager who loaned him at MK Dons last season, Laird has gone straight into the side. He has an assist already and looks comfortable at Championship level.

Dylan Levitt: Dundee United

Levitt has played two matches for Dundee United since moving to the club on loan.

His debut had Dundee United fans praising him highly. The second match was not so great, he was substituted after 53 minutes.

Andreas Pereira: Flamengo

Pereira made the move to Brazil at the end of the month and he joins Flamengo in the midst of their season.

He scored on his debut at the weekend after coming off the bench, capitalising on a poor backpass to slot a one on one past the goalkeeper.

James Garner: Nottingham Forest

Garner returned to Nottingham Forest after plenty of speculation about what his future may hold.

He has returned to a club in a mini-crisis, with Forest managing one draw and four defeats from their opening five league games.

Garner has made two starts so far, featuring most recently in their draw with Derby at the weekend.

Brandon Williams: Norwich City

Brandon Williams has played two games for Norwich so far. His debut came in a 6-0 win over Bournemouth in the League Cup.

The Premier League will be trickier, as he experienced in a 2-1 defeat to Leicester at the weekend. This will be a character-building loan for Williams, but at least he is getting a chance to play.

D’Mani Mellor: Salford City

Mellor recovered from an ACL injury suffered last summer to score and assist in his opening two games for United’s under-23s.

United don’t want to hold him back further and the young striker has been loaned to Salford City to show what he can do. He made his debut as a second half substitute against Newport County at the weekend.
