Loan Deals between Football Clubs?

How does a loan deal for players work in the English Premier League? Is it fair that so called big clubs can take players on loan? Surely this is against the interest of smaller clubs. As I remember clubs who did not have a lot of money to spare for transfers, were allowed to take loan players, but the player could not play in games at the end of the season that affected relegation or promotion. Has this changed?

    I am not sure if the rule you were talking about still applies, but let’s think about it. In the long run, loan deals do many parties a lot of good.

    For youngsters at big clubs, like Scott Carson and Ben Foster from Liverpool and Manchester United respectively, they get regular playing time in the higher-end tiers rather than languish in the reserves, giving them a chance to show their parent clubs what exactly they can offer them, and also attract offers from other teams in case they fall out of favour at their parent clubs. Look how David Beckham benefited from a loan move to Preston North End from Manchester United.

    For the big clubs themselves, it allows them to look at their young charges’ abilities and progress and decide whether they make the cut in the future.

    For the struggling clubs, it beefs up their squad, and ultimately gives them a chance to survive till the last day of the season rather than be relegated some time sooner.

    Mid-table, cash-strapped clubs like Bolton Wanderers and Everton make loan signings in the January transfer window to aid them in pushing for an European spot towards the end of their campaign. Many clubs in the Championship, like Queens Park Rangers, rely heavily on loan signings from top-flight clubs like Chelsea for survival and avoid financial meltdown. It is perhaps fair, for the rule you mentioned to apply, to make it for attractive for clubs to make permanent signings rather than sign loan deals, as this would generate more money for the league and ultimately benefit football. It would also differentiate small clubs whose players are not their own, from the bigger ones who use their own top players to survive.

    i think they changed the rule so loan players cant be stopped by the team who owns them from playing against anyone (even the team that owns them)

    Yes that changes. I think loan benefits the small clubs greatly. Usually it’s the small clubs who loan from big clubs not vice versa. The small clubs can get free player (usually the parent club pays the wage / or share it) and the big clubs can have the players to traing and gain real game experience which benefit the players themselves in the future. win Win win

    the rules are that the player cannot play against his current contracted club against the club he is loaned to
    but ‘smaller’ clubs loan out players to ‘bigger’ clubs to
    save on wage bills
    have the player gain experience
    let the club have a try before you buy mentality so if the player is good he can be transfered and if not return to his own club
    and loans can happen outside the transfer windows so teams can still get players if they are in a mess…

    Not sure if the rules have been changed.However loan deals are a good idea they give the player a chance to keep playing & usually fit.
