With the loan window now closed, we here at the Manc Cave are taking a look at a couple of the loanees from the United academy who are dotted about in the lower leagues of English football.
United have long been associated with youth and a club ethos of promoting young players. The Red Devils 80 year record of consistently naming a player from their academy in the matchday squad, speaks volumes in itself.
Many believed when Jose Mourinho took over, that this tradition would fizzle out – however, he has fully embraced the traditions of the club.
United currently have a host of players out on loan including:
Joel Periera – Vitoria Setubal
Axel Tuanzebe – Aston Villa
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson – Scunthorpe United
Tim Fosu-Mensah – Fulham
James Wilson – Aberdeen
Borthwick-Jackson will be hoping for a better loan spell than, he has endured over the past two seasons.
Where he played once last year at Leeds before having his spell cut short in January and, at Wolves the previous season, only grabbing a handful of games all season.
Borthwick-Jackson has started four games so far this year in League 1 and the EFL Cup and played the full 90 minutes in every game.
He’ll be sure to finally show his potential.
