Manchester United Loan Update: United wonderkid ‘wows’ in Spain

A brief look at the progress of the United starlets serving their time with other clubs

Nick Powell has been in tremendous form for Wigan so far this season as well as impressing in the second tier, he has managed to build up a reputation in Europe through his Europa Legaue performances.

He has managed to become a key player for Wigan this season, making 13 appearances and scoring 5 goals, with 1 assists.

In Wigan’s last game, the attack minded midfielder played the full match but didn’t score as they beat relegation favourites Yeovil 1-0 at Huish Park.


Chilian International Angelo Henriquez missed out on a call-up which would have seen him get chance to test himself against England and Brazil, but still continues to impress in Spain’s second tier.

The striker was on target once more at the weekend, taking his tally up to 5 goals for the season. The loan is seen as a good chance for the player to test himself before getting a chance in the first team for United, if he continues to impress there is a good chance he could get that chance next season.


Jesse Lingard and Ryan Tunnicliffe both played the majority of their Championship ties last weekend.

Lingard produced a lively performance in Birmingham’s 3-1 win, but unfortunately couldn’t find the net himself and Tunnicliffe played a pivotal role in Ipswich’s 3-2 win over promotion rivals Blackpool, of which Tyler Blackett was an unused sub for.


Elsewhere, Belgium under-21 Marnick Vermijl got his chance to play against Dutch giants Ajax in Eredivisie, but will hopefully took the game as a ‘learning curve’ as he was on the end of a 3-0 defeat, thanks partly to brace from former Newcastle target Siem de Jong.
