Making a Loan Offer
Loaning players typically benefits all parties. The player gets first team football, his owners benefit from the player either developing or not being at the team any more, which reduces the club’s wage bill depending on the deal, and the loaning team get a player they presumably want, having offered to loan him.
Note that you can offer a Playing Monthly Fee and Wage alongside a Non-Playing Monthly Fee and Wage. In essence this means that you can try to sweeten the deal by offering to pay a greater sum and/or contribution should the player not play a certain number of minutes for your first team (the rough thresholds are no minutes, every possible minute, and about halfway between the two), perhaps whilst not paying so much for the privilege of actually playing him. It could theoretically encourage a team to enter into a loan agreement with you if they are being compensated for their player not playing, but – as with all transfer negotiations – it’s a fine balancing act.
When composing a loan offer you can set the duration of his spell at your club, as well as your wage contribution and any fee you may offer as an incentive for his club to accept the offer. A series of clauses and loan options may then be configured; for example, if there is any intention to keep the player long-term, you can set a ‘Future Fee’ which you can meet at any time and offer the player a full time contract.
You are also able to inform the player’s parent club of your intentions for him by declaring his role in the squad and the position you’re likely to play him in.
