Does it give us more control? Youth loans give control as they only run for 28 days and players can still play for their home team in limited circumstances which I think includes reserve games.How much difference is there between L2 and National League? Not all that much AFAIK, but I could be wrong.
Is it worth sending him to NL until at least January, which gives the club more control, and maybe trying to get him a slot in L1 for the second half of the season?
That couldn't happen at League level because Clubs have to name a squad.
Not sure what the rules are at National League level.
