Four United youngsters have joined Royal Antwerp on loan until January.
Darron Gibson, Danny Simpson, Jonny Evans and Fraizer Campbell have flown to Belgium, and will spend the next four-and-a-half months learning their trade in the Belgian second division.
All four players appeared for United’s first team during pre-season. Gibson, Simpson and Evans were heavily involved in the Club’s South Africa tour, while Campbell scored the winning goal against Macclesfield at Moss Rose.
Simpson is in his second spell at Antwerp, after spending five months with the Belgians in the second half of last season.
