Tom Cleverley has given his seal of approval to Manchester United's summer transfer policy, with the midfielder insisting that all of the side's signings have brought a great deal to the fold this season.

Robin van Persie, Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell all made moves to Old Trafford during the last window, with Sir Alex Ferguson hoping to build on his attacking line up to challenge a Manchester City side who took the title with a higher goal difference last season.

And though the side faltered against Tottenham at the weekend, Cleverley believes that the new faces have brought a great deal to the United squad as they look to get the title back.

"They've all brought so much," he told the United website. "We all know what Robin van Persie is about and Nick Powell is a really good footballer and a good lad. He's definitely one for the future."

Cleverley also singled out Kagawa for praise, saying of the Japanese international: "I've really enjoyed playing with Shinji.

Robin van Persie has given Manchester United a massive boost, Tom Cleverley says.

"He's really on my wavelength when it comes to playing one and two-touch football."

Cleverley suffered from injury problems last season, holding the England international back from reaching his potential for both club and country.

But this season he has a chance to show that he will be an important part of a new generation for United's line-up, with the likes of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs running out of time to enjoy their primes.

So far he has made eight appearances for the Red Devils in this campaign, and scored for the club for the first time when they played Newcastle in the Capital One Cup.

If that feat can be repeated against the Toon on Sunday in the league, the 23 year old will be on the road to proving just how important he is to Sir Alex Ferguson's plans this season.
