The defender made 28 appearances on loan with Championship Birmingham, and Meulensteen is unsure whether to pitch him out on loan again.
"Dan's been a breath of fresh air. He did well in the Norwich away game," Meulensteen said.
"Him staying here now is definitely something we're going to review, definitely.
"He's matured a lot in Birmingham where he had a very good loan spell and next to Brede Hangeland he looked extremely comfortable.
"The only way that I keep them apart is that he's right footed and Dan's left footed.
"You work with him on the pitch - it's great for someone like Dan to have Brede coming back from that injury so they can work together.
"Dan is a very bright boy, he's not afraid to speak his mind, he talks, and that's the sort of thing you look at, and it was a very positive performance from him."
