Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world, with the Red Devils not only a historic club but one who are one of the most successful ones in football history. The Premier League giants have a number of top players on their books, but can field only 11 at one time while holding on to some to chip in from the bench.

To help aid their development, a number of players have been allowed to leave on loan to garner more experience. United have sent 13 players out on loan and here, we take a look at who they are and how they have fared this season.

12) Ethan Laird
Capable of playing down the wing and as a centre-back, Ethan Laird has been used in a right wing-back role at MK Dons this season. The role suits his attacking instincts and he is another who has been tipped to have a great future.

13) Facundo Pellestri
The 19-year-old joined United on deadline day, but soon moved to Alaves in LaLiga, where he been a regular in the first-team. However, he has a tough task ahead of him as his club are currently battling relegation.
