Patrick Roberts apart from his 1st year at Celtic has been a disaster. He is injured more than Roque Santa Cruz.

Boro fans love him so he's obviously put the work in there. Time to let him go in my opinion

Phillipe Sandler - I don’t see a future path for him and his loan was cruelly ended with injury. Another season at Anderlecht would be ideal.
Both Anderlecht and Sandler already stated there will not be a new loan for him there.

With the league being done and dusted I thought it would be a good time to consider the futures of those out on loan.

Will they be sold? Will they come back into the fold or will it be another loan?

Any comments on how they’ve done and what people think would be greatly appreciated as we do have millions of talent out and about!

Zak Steffen - USA no.1 and from what I’ve heard impressed in his stint at at Fortuna Düsseldorf. Unfortunately cut short by injury...will he come back to be no. 2 at City? Will he be happy with that? I could see another loan for him to help him develop further especially as we have been linked with David Raya of Brentford.

Yangel Herrera - arguably one of the most successful loans and has been a revelation at Granada. Could he be a squad player at City or is it a cash in at £15-20m with a buy back and sell on?

Tosin Adarabioyo - after a mixed spell at WBA he’s greatly impressed at Blackburn. Could he be reintegrated into 3/4th choice at City or is at a loan/sale with a buy back to a footballing side that plays out from the back a la Leeds for example.

Jack Harrison - great loan spell for him and has secured another year with Leeds with the option to buy. Don’t think he’ll ever make it at Vitynbut should earn us a nice profit.

Patrick Roberts - frustrating again from the man with so much potential. I envisage that he will be loaned again next season but can’t see him ever being a fixture for us. We’ll do well to get a few million unless he has a turnaround year. Would love to see him loaned to a team that has possession. Brentford would be a good place for him or Norwich.

Lukas Nmecha - underwhelming yet again. Think it’s time to cut him loose. Can’t see him progressing past Championship level or a less demanding European league such as Belgium, Holland or France.

Angelino - impressed at RB Leipzig. I think he’s a useful option to have should we ever want to play wing backs. As a traditional full back his career may be elsewhere. Either way he’s a good squad option or £20m plus in the bank.

Matt Smith - after a great loan in Holland he’s had two poor spells in London. Needs to be playing at a technical team. Another loan in the championship will hopefully kick him on. Only 20, so time on his side and one good year can get him back on track.

Luke Bolton - started well and then faded at Luton as they fought for their lives. With Nathan Jones back at Luton, could be good to stay another year. Either way I think another loan in the championship will do him well.

Ko Itakura - impressed at Groningen, doubt he’ll ever be good enough for City. On loan for another year with Groningen. Hopefully he’ll do well and get us a few million in the bank.

Ryotaro Meshino - couple of flashes at Hearts but nothing else. A loan to Holland could be the answer and maybe Groningen would be a good fit.

Joel Latibeaudiere - didn’t really get much game time at Twente. Can’t see a future for him at City. needs a good loan to secure a move elsewhere and help him kick on.

Aro Muric - disaster at Forest. Rather than sit on our bench another loan, possibly abroad would be where I see him.

Phillipe Sandler - I don’t see a future path for him and his loan was cruelly ended with injury. Another season at Anderlecht would be ideal.

Aleix Garcia - had a productive loan spell in Belgium but won’t be returning. Hopefully he’ll get a move to a good club and fashion a decent career.

Claudio Gomes - hoping a move up to a the top league for him after impressing with Jong PSV.

Daniel Arzani - back fit and definitely needs a loan. Holland could be an ideal fit.

Erik Palmer Brown - played a lot in Austria can’t see anything other than a sale due to his age.

Illic Brothers - another season in Holland would be good, preferably in the top tier.

Ante Palaversa - injury spoiled his season but was making good progress. Could do a job for Vinnie at Anderlecht possibly?

Pedro Porro - didn’t feature in the last few months but made enough impact to get admiring glances from elsewhere. Mooted for a loan to Sporting Lisbon. Another year away will help his development.

Sure I’ve missed some, sure some others may be leaving too. Thoughts or any more knowledge would be welcome. Do we think any could do a job for us at present or in the future?
Well researched post.

Other than Steffen who may well be with us next season, I actually don’t think any of them will be City squad players. They’ll all go back out on loan or be sold.

I keep seeing people on this website saying that Tosin might be 3rd or 4th choice next season... there’s more chance of Fernandinho and Otamendi being given 5 year contracts and being our first choices for those five years than Tosin being a squad player for City. He’s a Championship level player, which is very good, it’s a good level of footy and easily in the top 20 leagues in Europe, but he won’t be playing for us.

Top 20 is a bit negative and the comment about Fernandiho and Otamendi is just daft. We cannot keep buying players either for cover as 3rd, 4th or 5th choice either I see no reason why he cannot be fighting for a back up right cb spot with Garcia, perhaps Stones and Fernandiho if we sign a main right CB people who have watched him a lot certainly rate him and it seems like you have not watched him or the championship for that matter or understand how these things might work

We really need to develop some strong relationships with a number of clubs of different standards to develop these loans properly. Too many of them end disastrous for one reason or another, find the right club at the right level and these guys will be making us a lot of money.

I say making us money ahead of developing into a city standard player as that’s the primary goal for the vast majority of these players, it’s just a major bonus when one becomes good enough.

Angelino could have been the first major success story but he’s just not suited for Peps system. Other than the keeper, I don’t see any of them being kept around next season, more loans, hopefully a few sales and a number of releases.
