The lad is still a teenager.

Yes we paid a decent fee for him but how many lads that age are ready to play in the first team of a club hoping to challenge in the top 6?

If he stays but isn't up to starting, which his involvement at the end of last season suggests, then his playing time will be limited to a few minutes here and there or cup games against shit sides.

If the club think it's better for his (and our) long term benefit to go on loan at a decent level, fine.

People stressing out like fuck over someone who featured in 2 of our final 12 games of the season, one of those times being for just a single minute.

You can start him here and there in Europa, impact sub in the Prem.  Why loan him out?

Assuming we draw 2 easy teams and one decent in our group, that's only 4 starts (against the 2 easy teams). Anything after the group stage will probably require us to go full strength.

A full season of starts would be 10 times more beneficial than a few starts and getting chucked on now and again for 15 minutes.

He's good enough to play at this level

And you're basing that on what?
