One player who is having a great season out on loan so far is our 19-year-old midfielder, Sean Longstaff.
Sean is on loan at Blackpool, and he has scored four goals with three assists in his 7 games this season so far.
Earlier in the year, he was on loan at Kilmarnock where he scored 3 goals in 17 appearances for the Scottish Premiership club.
Sean is on loan officially until January 6th at Blackpool and Bristol City, Barnsley and Bolton are all interested in the youngster according to the Chronicle and could be willing to take him on loan in January.
That would be a step up in divisions for Sean, and it depends on whether Rafa thinks that would be good for the teenager.
Sean Longstaff on loan at Blackpool and playing well
He gets games at Blackpool, and he is doing well there so why not leave him on loan at Blackpool for the rest of the season, where he could continue to do really well?
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is also said to be watching the development of the talented North Shields-born youngster, but Sean wouldn’t get many first team games at the Cherries if he moved there early next year.
The main thing for youngsters going out on loan is to get first-team games and to do well, and that’s exactly what Sean is doing at Blackpool.
And Blackpool are on 17 points from their first 8 games and are joint second in League One, so they are also doing well this season.
We would be surprised if Rafa moves him on loan to another club in January.
