Like with Nwaneri, some may argue that it is too soon to loan out Michal Rosiak, but it could actually be the perfect time to give him senior experience ahead of potential first-team integration the following season.

Rosiak is a defensive midfielder who can also play in defence and is a nine-time Poland youth international, most recently, and currently, for their U19 side.

In the 2023/24 season, Rosiak enjoyed a tremendous campaign, scoring nine goals and assisting six across his 22 appearances in the U18 Premier League, while also making seven Premier League 2 appearances for the U21 side, despite being just 18 years old.

He will turn 19 shortly after the start of the new season, which could make it the perfect opportunity to kickstart his pathway into regular senior football, and a loan move into the lower leagues could prove invaluable for his development.

Rosiak is among the most exciting talents in the academy at present and, if his development is managed properly, there is no reason why he cannot break into the first team in the years to come and establish himself as a mainstay.
