Huddersfield Town fans are eager for announcements on incoming deals and the indications are that the club are continuing to ramp up their recruitment drive.
Assistant manager Steve Thompson revealed Town have held discussions with Premier League clubs as they look to establish who will be made available for a move in 2014/2015.
Thompson kept his cards close to his chest but Premier League targets could well be in the offing for the Terriers in the coming weeks.
With teams in the top flight threatening to spend like never before, plenty of players are being deemed surplus to requirements.
That will prick up the ears of Town, who are on the lookout for quality, not just drafting bodies in to appease those who feel additions are essential.
With that in mind, here are 25 players who could potentially be heading out on loan this season from the top-flight clubs in 2014/2015.
Benik Afobe - The injury-hit striker spent time on loan at Town in the 2010/2011 campaign and scored eight goals in all competitions but his career has stalled since.
Experienced difficult spells at Reading, Bolton Wanderers and Millwall before a productive stint at Sheffield Wednesday towards the end of last term. Has scored three times for Arsenal during pre-season.
Hector Bellerin - The Spaniard was plucked from Barcelona at a young age alongside Jon Toral and after the departure of Bacary Sagna this summer, there was an expectation that he may compete for a first-team spot after spending time on loan at Watford last season.
But the signing of Mathieu Debuchy and the imminent arrival of Calum Chambers means there is unlikely to be enough room at right-back, with Carl Jenkinson set to secure a move away due to his drop down the pecking order.
Kristoffer Olsson - The Swedish midfielder looks to be on the fringes of first-team action at the Emirates and has a wealth of competition in front of him in his hopes to secure a central midfield position.
A loan move may be the best option at this stage of his career and he will have plenty of suitors due to his technical ability. Made his first Arsenal appearance last year in a Capital One Cup win over West Bromwich Albion and scored along with Afobe in a recent 2-0 friendly win against Boreham Wood.
Gary Gardner - The 22-year-old penned a new deal at the tail end of last season but there is a feeling that he may be approaching a fork in the road of his Villa Park career.
Despite his obvious talent, he has not been able to progress in the way Paul Lambert would have envisaged and it may well be that he seeks a move akin to his switch to Sheffield Wednesday in 2013/2014.
Jack Grealish - The Villans have high hopes for the 18-year-old who made his first-team debut last season in the 4-0 humbling at Manchester City but a loan looks the sensible idea for him.
He would fit Town manager Robins' blueprint of being able to work in various positions, having appeared in both the left-wing and central attacking midfield roles. He even has the capacity to play as an attack-minded left-back which could be perfect in the 3-5-2 formation.
Nathaniel Chalobah - The Blues youngster is another who can slot into different positions seamlessly and offers defensive and midfield cover. He is perhaps the ultimate versatile performer at this level.
He impressed on loan at Watford in 2012/2013 and, while his time at Nottingham Forest last season did not go entirely according to plan, he flourished at Middlesbrough in the latter stages. He seems certain to go back out on loan given Chelsea's embarrassment of riches in midfield.
Islam Feruz - The speedy Scotland Under-21 international is being tipped for a temporary move away to get a taste for first-team football having helped the Blues' under-21 side win the Premier League Championship at their level.
He would offer pace in the transition and looks to play on the shoulder of the last defender to utilise his agility, allied with his composure in front of goal.
Jonathan Williams - It might seem like something of a long shot on Town's part given the youngster's links with Swansea City, but he would fit the profile of player Town should be targeting to move up the league.
He excelled with Ipswich Town last season on loan from Crystal Palace and could face a similarly difficult task in forcing his way through this year if Eagles boss Tony Pulis is able to nail down his transfer targets.
Shane Duffy - The young imposing central defender has been handed the chance by Toffees boss Roberto Martinez to prove he is worthy of a first-team berth this season but a temporary move elsewhere may aid him in his development.
Was the sole plus point of Yeovil Town's disappointing Championship campaign in 2013/2014 and comes with the added bonus of being able to play centrally and at right-back. At 6ft4" he is a commanding presence in the air.
Jordon Ibe - The livewire winger was a sensation at Birmingham City last season and Championship clubs - Town included - should be pushing their way to the front of the queue for him.
A similar player to Feruz in many respects, although Ibe is perhaps more of a conventional winger with the ability to play down the middle if needed. He is strong as well as quick and would represent a tremendous piece of business.
Jack Robinson - Unlike many of the players already mentioned, Robinson plies his trade in a position in which Town are already well-stocked, with Paul Dixon and Jake Carroll already battling it out for their place in the starting XI.
But Robinson will be eager to impress after a hit-and-miss spell at Blackpool and though his spiky side could be cause for concern he has the potential to become a star in the second tier.
Harry Wilson - Only signed to his first professional contract this summer but plenty of clubs will have already sat up and taken notice of the youngster's talents.
A throwback to the days of Ryan Giggs and Marc Overmars as an out-and-out left winger, Wilson is a skilful wideman who looks to take on the full-back at any given opportunity. Looks destined for a loan spell after Brendan Rodgers' summer spree.
Seko Fofana - The powerful midfield general was an alleged victim of racist abuse during City's pre-season friendly in Croatia against HNK Rijeka but will not allow a setback such as this to impact on him.
Fofana is a confident performer and has attracted comparisons with both Patrick Vieira - his manager at Development Squad level - and Yaya Toure due to his playing style in the middle third.
Reece James - Brought to just about everyone's attention during United's 7-0 drubbing of LA Galaxy during their North American tour, with the young left-back notching twice after being introduced at the interval.
It is fair to suggest he is something of an unknown quantity who has burst onto the scene and given United's paucity of options beyond Luke Shaw at left-back, there may yet be a vacancy for James to fill. Alternatively, he will be sent out on loan to establish whether or not he is ready.
Michael Keane - He has already been linked with a move to Town and, given Mark Robins links to the club, it would not be a surprise if Town were to formalise any casual interest they have held in the central defender.
Shone with Derby County and Blackburn Rovers last season and this stage appears to be a good platform but it remains to be seen whether or not both he and the club have set their sights higher in terms of a club from him to go to this season.
Tom Lawrence - If Liverpool's Wilson appeared more or less the heir to Ryan Giggs, given his Welsh connections, then Lawrence takes that one step further.
He exploded onto the scene alongside another Wilson - United's James - and plays predominantly on the left-wing, although he is equally capable of leading the line. While new manager Louis Van Gaal wants to take a closer look, Lawrence may not fit into the 3-5-2 system being tried out at present.
Jesse Lingard - Starred on loan with Brighton and Hove Albion last season and another temporary move is not out of the question, but like his other youngsters Van Gaal will want to run a thorough check on each before sanctioning their releases.
Lingard can play as any part of the '3' in a 4-2-3-1 and is quick, tricky and very good technically. He proved that he can cut it at Championship level with first Birmingham City and then the Seagulls, netting four goals for each.
Sammy Ameobi - The Newcastle United man is yet another on this list who is not exclusively confined to one position. He is more than capable of working as a conventional winger or as a supporting striker.
He is perhaps a little erratic, but he would bring Town boss Mark Robins all sorts of options in the final third and will be keen to test himself again at this level having floundered somewhat on loan at Middlesbrough.
Gael Bigirimana - Hailed as a key player for the future after arriving from Coventry City, Bigirimana has been unable to command a starting spot often enough and will now seek first-team opportunities elsewhere.
He is handicapped by his similarity to Cheick Tiote, and the arrivals of Siem de Jong, Remy Cabella and, most pertinently, Jack Colback are set to restrict his chances of breaking through still further.
Omar Rowe - The quicksilver winger penned a new deal with the club earlier this year and given the current exodus at St Mary's which has seen Luke Shaw join Manchester United, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert head to Liverpool and Calim Chambers seal a move to Arsenal, he may well be needed to boost numbers.
He can play on either flank and scored nine goals for the Saints development team last term so he has a clear desire to get in amongst the goals and was rewarded with a first-team debut too, suggesting he is more than ready to try his luck at a slightly lesser level.
Brek Shea - The American has failed to sparkle for either Stoke City or Barnsley, where he spent part of the 2013/2014 campaign on loan before departing in controversial circumstances after confronting Tykes fans after a 5-0 loss at Huddersfield Town.
Nevertheless, this is a winger who arrived at the Britannia Stadium with a reputation for being someone who can provide goals and assists from out wide and is able to get at his man. May just be worth the gamble.
Ryan Shotton - Was on loan at Wigan Athletic last season and is a similar player to Chalobah in that he is as comfortable in a midfield role as he is at the back.
A similar player to Lee Peltier in a lot of respects and actually played for the Latics in the main at right-back or as the right-sided central defender in a three-man backline last season. The Potters will continue to strengthen and that could have ramifications on Shotton's future at the club.
Mikael Mandron - The French striker showed his current employers just what he has to offer with a pre-season winning goal at Carlisle United but with Gus Poyet looking to bring back Fabio Borini, first-team chances will surely be limited.
He spent the second half of 2013/2014 on loan at Fleetwood Town but he looks well-equipped to turn out at an even higher level this season, if not quite the top flight.
Kyle Bartley - A success for Birmingham City last season on loan at the Swans and why he may feel this can be the season he truly puts pressure on the likes of Ashley Williams, Chico Flores and Jordi Amat, the club may still be open to letting him truly establish himself externally.
He would certainly fit the bill for Town given his Arsenal pedigree as a defender who is comfortable with the ball at his feet and moving out into midfield to join in with attacks, something that could appeal to Mark Robins.
West Ham United:
Elliot Lee - The Durham-born striker is one of the most talented young players on the Hammers' books at present but will need to develop the sort of battle-hardened qualities the Championship demands to truly cut it at the top level.
He signed a new deal at Upton Park at the turn of the year and has scored freely at reserve and youth team level so Town could do a lot worse should they decide to pursue a deal for a frontman this summer.
