Indeed, measures have been taken to change the regulations from the summer transfer window 2022 in order to reduce the number of loan players.

The number of loans will be reduced significantly over the next few years, although this does not concern players under 21 or club-trained players at the moment.

Naija News 247 gathered that, From 2024, clubs will be restricted to six players loaned-in and six loaned-out at one time. Under 21s and club-trained players will be exempt.

These are therefore new rules made to prevent clubs from accumulating players and then lending a large number without there necessarily being a sporting logic.

It can also limit certain agreements that “distort” the market a little with several sales made to set up loans.

There were clubs more than twenty players loaned per season (especially in Serie A), it was of course far too much.

The rules include:

The requirement of a written agreement defining the terms of the loan, in particular its duration and financial conditions. The agreement should include a minimum loan duration, and a maximum loan duration – being one year.

A ban on sub-loaning a professional player who is already on loan to a third club.

A limit on the number of loans per season between the same clubs. At any given time during a season, a club may only have a maximum of three professionals loaned out to a single club and a maximum of three professionals loaned in from a single club.

There will also be restrictions on a club’s total number of loans per season and to ensure that this is implemented smoothly, there will be a three stage transitional period.

From July 1 to June 30 2023, clubs may have a maximum of eight professional players loaned out and eight loaned in at any given time during a season.
