Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been impressive for Crystal Palace

Manchester United seem to be settling down under Jose Mourinho and are now confident of finishing 2nd in the Premier League. They have beaten Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal in the last 2 months and but for the occasional slip-up, they are starting to perform like a Manchester United team ought to.

With the end of the season fast approaching, plans for the transfer market are already being laid out. Some of Manchester United's exciting youngsters were loaned out in order to get more action than they would have if they had stayed at Old Trafford and they'll soon return to claim a spot in the squad.

On that note, let's take a look at 3 Manchester United loanees who have proved themselves over the course of the season.

#3 Timothy Fosu-Mensah

Fosu-Mensah can be a quality replacement for Antonio Valencia

Fosu Mensah took his time to ease into his groove at Selhurst Park but once he did, he was their standout performer in defence. He has featured 21 times for Palace and only 4 of them have come off the bench.

His impressive showings for Roy Hodgson's side earned him a call up to the Dutch national team. The best thing about Fosu Mensah, as far as United are concerned, is that he has been deployed and has been effective as a right back.

Manchester United don't really have a quality alternative for captain Antonio Valencia at right back and Fosu-Mensah's return is much awaited at Old Trafford. Though the Dutchman needs to improve his passing and needs to get better at using his frame in aerial duels, the youngster is strong on the tackle and has the legs to catch up with the fastest in the league.
