Manchester United have been frustrated with the advancement of some loan deals for their young players during this transfer window, but expect others to leave before the October 5 deadline.
Midfielder Dylan Levitt became the latest youngster to agree a temporary deal this week, joining League One Charlton Athletic for the season days after making his debut for Wales.
Tahith Chong has previously joined Werder Bremen on loan, while goalkeeper Matej Kovar joined Swindon Town, also in Ligue 1.
Midfielder James Garner Also expected to leave shortly, with interest from Championship side Huddersfield to take the 19-year-old on loan.
Corn Under 23 Boss Neil Wood expects more players to leave, with those who played regularly for his side last season likely to get a taste of senior football.
This could lead to moves for Ethan Laird, Di’Shon Bernard and Ethan Galbraith, with Wood keen for players who have a season of development football behind them to experience a loan move.
But he admits progress has been slow in sorting out some of those deals, with the transfer window remaining open for just over three weeks.
“The guys who were with us last year will probably be loaned out. But there are factors against that. Sometimes the agents want to get involved, or the player might not want to go,” Wood said.
“There is a lot of interest and a lot of them have been in talks. We probably would have expected some to pass by now, but there are things happening that are stopping it.
“At the moment they are still with us, there is a lot of interest and it also depends on the decisions of the players.”
The wood insists United will be happy for these youngsters to leave, rather than having another season of Premier League 2 football.
That would leave him with a young team but they drew a warning of the potential they have with a 6-0 victory at Salford City in the EFL Trophy Wednesday night.
“We will never retain them. The guys who are destined to be loaned out, we are not going to retain them just to play in the U-23 league, we recognize that the next challenge for them is to come out in the league, go play twice a week, meet the requirements of that and play well,” added Wood.
