United's defender has his work cut out at Norwich

United have a total of seven players out on loan at present so we at RFFH thought it’d be good to let you know how they’re getting on..

Portuguese winger who was sent out on loan to Turkish side Besiktas could be sidelined for six months after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament playing for Portugal under-21s.

The 21-year-old joined United from Vitoria de Guimaraes for £7.4m in 2010, but has played only seven first-team games for the Premier League .

Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed during last week’s press conference that he will be doing the majority of his rehab in his home country. Get well soon Bebe.

Belgian full-back Ritchie De Laet is at Premier League side and started for the Canaries in their opening fixture last week against Wigan. After a solid performance whereby he made two goal-stopping blocks, Ritchie is expected to start against City.

Both Scott Wootton and Ryan Tunnicliffe played in Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough side that thrashed Ipswich 7-1. Tunnicliffe, a late substitute, almost added to the rout with a shot hitting the post. Wooton looked comfortable whenever in possession but the defender was not particularly tested in his side ran riot.

Norweigan striker Joshua came on for his debut for Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Friday night in the 87th minute while his side ran out 4-1 winners over Wolfsburg. Reece Brown was handed a full debut at Derby after being loaned out to Doncaster Rovers on a one-month . Brown was subbed off after a difficult 61 minutes where his side conceded three goals and were unable to trouble their opposition.

Robbie Brady shook off a virus to start for Hull in their home game against Crystal Palace. The tricky winger was subbed off after 64 minutes in this 1-0 home loss and was joined by ex-reds Corry , James Chester and Joe Dudgeon in Nigel Pearson’s side.
