A new loan decision set to be implemented next season could have a big impact on Wolves, according to reliable journalist Tim Spiers.
The Lowdown: new loan decision
According to Athleticism, clubs will be limited in the number of international players they can loan out in the future.
From next season, teams will only be allowed to have eight players temporarily away elsewhere and that number will drop to six by 2024.
Wolves currently have ten players on loan, highlighting how clubs will be affected by the new venture going forward.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Spiers reacts to the claim
Take from Twitter On Thursday, Spiers gave his take on the news, explaining its impact on Wanderers’ business:
“New loan rules coming next season which will impact Wolves, who had 10 players on loan abroad in the first half of the season (max 8 next year then max 6 from of 2024) and four at Grasshoppers (max 3 in a club).”
The verdict: good decision
In truth, it’s healthy to see this move introduced, with the report rightly saying it’s a good way to stop clubs ‘hoarding talent’.
It’s good to see players aged 21 and under won’t be affected as loan moves can be healthy for their development, like Wolves striker Theo Corbeanu, who is currently at MK Dons.
This will make teams think more about recruiting in general and potentially ensure they get the most out of players already in their ranks, rather than hoarding players for purely financial reasons.
