Manchester United currently have nine players out on loan and, for the majority, their chances of becoming Old Trafford regulars appear remote.
Tim Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Matty Willock, Callum Whelan, Tom Samg, James Wilson, Zak Dearnley and Joel Pereira are all spending the second half of the season away from the club.
However, many of the Manchester United stars are toiling and doing little to force their way into the club’s future plans.
Express Sport gives you the full lowdown on how they all fared this weekend.
Tim Fosu Mensah
Has endured a difficult time at Fulham but impressed keeping Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah quiet on Sunday. Progress.
Out injured, so missed Aston Villa’s emphatic victory over Middlesbrough.
Another player on the sidelines. Was absent for Scunthorpe’s 2-0 defeat to Portsmouth.
Had an afternoon to forget as Crawley were thumped 6-1 by Crewe. Was substituted before the final whistle.
One for the future, but did not play in Port Vale’s goalless draw with Swindon Town.
Did not play in Flyde’s goalless draw with Stockport on Saturday.
Was an unused substitute as Aberdeen drew with Livingston in the Scottish Premiership.
Kortrijk signed him on loan in January, but he has barely played. Was again benched for their 2-0 win over Antwerp.
Oldham’s match with Tranmere was postponed, meaning Dearnley has been able to enjoy a breather.
