Stoke City is considering loaning out some players for the next season to help them accumulate minutes and continue their development. Here is a list of three players who might be loaned out for the upcoming season.

The Potters aim to ensure that all their players are in the best possible form for a promising future. Loans are a great strategy to help young players gain experience in a club where they can further develop their skills. These are the three players with potential loan deals:

Nikola Jojić

The 20-year-old Serbian winger shows great promise. In the Premier League 2, he has participated in several matches (15), scoring 4 goals and providing 2 assists. However, at his age, he needs to focus on preparing to compete at the elite level of English football, where he can contribute his offensive quality to The Potters in the future.

Tommy Simkin

At 19 years old, the English goalkeeper needs significant minutes to continue improving his talent, which has already earned him a call-up to the England U20 national team. In the Premier League 2, he has played 5 matches, conceding 10 goals, not demonstrating great performance. Meanwhile, in the National League, he has played 18 matches, conceding only 19 goals.

Liam McCarron

The left-back with excellent attacking potential has not yet managed to establish himself at The Potters. At 23 years old, he still lacks minutes in the first team, suggesting that his future might not lie with Stoke City. A loan or even a permanent exit seems most viable. In the Premier League 2 last season, he played 11 matches, scoring 1 goal and providing 3 assists, showcasing a high level of performance in the competition.
