The Premier League clubs will be making final decisions about their squads for the upcoming season over the next day or two.
With the transfer window closing on Tuesday evening, it means the clubs will try to sign players and switch others if they don’t meet the requirements.
It could be a busy night as the clubs try to close their dealings.
However, there are also a number of players who can be loaned out in search of more regular first-team opportunities.
The clubs will try to develop the stars of tomorrow, and this is where a potential loan deal to the EFL could come in handy.
With that in mind, here are 10 players who could be hired to make a short-term move before the transfer window strikes.
Cameron Carter-Vickers – Tottenham
Cameron Carter-Vickers could be loaned out
The center-back appears to be a prime contender for a summer loan.
Carter-Vickers seems a long way from Tottenham’s plans for the first team and based on the experience of the past few years, a move to the championship seems to be the best fit.
Swansea, Stoke, Luton Town and Bournemouth have all benefited from the 23-year-old’s undisputed skills and that makes him a safe bet for another club in the second division.
Many clubs in the championship will be looking for a strong defense and Carter-Vickers will likely be the subject of some inquiries.
Liam Delap – Manchester City
Liam Delap is tipped for a great future at Manchester City
One of the most talented young players in the Premier League right now.
Delap is a player who looks like a real contender to follow in Phil Foden’s footsteps by breaking into Pep Guardiola’s first-team plans at Etihad.
However, the first focus must be on playing regular first-team football.
A lot of clubs in the championship are said to be interested in a move, but talks have slowed down a bit following a recent injury.
When he’s ready to play, expect a handful of clubs to sniff around the talented 18-year-old forward.
Neco Williams – Liverpool
Neco Williams can look for a loan on the deadline
A player who has already made his breakthrough on Liverpool’s professional team.
Williams has made 25 appearances for the Reds in his career, but with Trent Alexander-Arnold holding the right-back heavily, it means opportunities could be limited this season.
It seems the 20-year-old is likely to stick around as a squad option for Jürgen Klopp, but that won’t scare off potential loan inquiries.
The lure of regular first-team football will be very attractive to Williams, and if the right club comes in before the deadline, Jurgen Klopp could make a decision.
Reiss Nelson – Arsenal
Arsenal star Reiss Nelson wants regular football this season
The Arsenal man is at a crossroads in his career.
Nelson is a player who was predicted to have a very bright future, but at the age of 21 his career in the Emirates seems to have stalled a bit.
The forward has made 48 appearances for the Gunners since making his debut four seasons ago, but despite that, he has never really established himself as a central player.
Nelson deserves a regular first-team football and maybe a move to a top club in the championship could be the perfect platform for him.
Tino Anjorin – Chelsea

Anjorin already has valuable initial team experience
A player prepared for a very bright future.
The 19-year-old has made five appearances for Chelsea’s first team but with the chances likely limited under Thomas Tuchel it seems like a move would be a good prospect for the future.
Anjorin could benefit from training with the club’s world-class first-team squad, but moving to the championship or League One for an extended run in the first-team would add real maturity to his game and ensure he is ready for a spot in the first team to fight long term at Stamford Bridge.
Mengi Week – Manchester United
Mengi is certainly one to look out for in 2021
The 19-year-old is someone who already has a taste of EFL football.
Mengi was loaned to Derby County last season but went through a frustrating period with injuries that hampered his time at Pride Park.
This season could be the best chance for him to keep going.
It is very unlikely that Mengi will get a sustained run in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side later this season and so a move to the championship could be really good for him.
The performances last season showed that he was ready and that several clubs would be interested.
Jack Clarke – Tottenham

Jack Clarke could leave Spurs on loan
A player who is looking more and more desperately for a really strong season.
After leaving Leeds United for Tottenham, Clarke looked like a player ready to make an immediate difference.
Unfortunately, he didn’t have the kind of game time he wanted during his loan stints at Stoke City and QPR.
The 20-year-old is still pretty raw as a talent and moving to the championship or even a top League One club could give him the platform to strengthen his all-round game.
Harvey White – Tottenham
Harvey White is on loan
Another Tottenham starlet with a very bright future.
The central midfielder has already played for Spurs twice, despite being only 19 years old, but it was his move to Portsmouth that really stood out.
White made 21 appearances for Pompey last season, and while not ubiquitous, he certainly grew with the experience of playing at Fratton Park.
Another season of first-team regular football could be just what the midfielder needs to establish himself as a first-team player.
He’s not quite ready to play for Spurs just yet, so I’m sure those around him will encourage White to get some playing time.
Sam Greenwood – Leeds United

Sam Greenwood is now building a name for himself with Leeds United
A player who made a big impression at U23 level.
Greenwood played for Arsenal and Sunderland before moving to Elland Road where he was certainly productive for the club’s development department.
The striker made it onto the bench for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in their opener against Manchester United this season but the reality is there is a significant gap between him and the first team.
At 19, Greenwood is certainly a player on his side with the times, but a move to the EFL could really push him to bring more maturity to his game and ensure he can shine for Leeds in the future if asked to do so.
Morgan Gibbs-Whites – Wolves
Gibbs-White will be looking for more regular first-team opportunities
A player who might have piqued interest in the final days of the transfer window.
Gibbs-White has proven to be someone who can play a role for Wolves, but regular first team minutes have been hard to come by.
A loan deal with Swansea was hampered by an injury last season while he never really got off to a flying start and proved himself to be a core player.
The midfielder may imagine his chances of proving himself under Bruno Lage this season, but given his lack of opportunity in the club’s first Premier League games, he could be someone targeted by the championship’s top teams.
