“Very infrequently retain we had successful players who keep misplaced on loan and then come back. We obtain moved away from the loan system.
“On the irregular circumstances we bequeath make loans, but that won’t be because an agent has said, ‘He’s 18 now and needs to go on loan’. That’s legal ridiculous. I sometimes hear this proposal they have to be sent on loan to generate up.
“If we haven’t helped them develop up in the last 10 years at the Academy, then we haven’t done our job properly.
“There is no iota in us sending an 18-year-old child — no disrespect — to a League Two bludgeon if they don’t play similarly to us. I’m not sure what we would gain out of that unless there is a specific, physical or analytical grounds for us to perform that.

“The one device I wanted to look at was to produce an environment where our child players can see they are one march away from the blessing team. From watching the U23s the previous season when I was at the FA, the elegance of drama looked extraordinary different (to the best team).
“What that fashion is that you are not necessarily able to organize the players to have the full toolkit, so when they accomplish trudge up to file and stagecraft with the first team, they presume the beauty and equipment and what’s needful of them physically, tactically and mentally.
“There was definitely a extract among those two styles of play. I guess one of the immense wins was to come in and really remove the under-23s from the academy and alcove it as a B duo connected to the boon team.”
