The aim of sending young players out on loan is for them to rack up some much-needed minutes.
Liverpool sanctioned temporary moves for a handful of their talented academy stars, including Ben Woodburn.
The 19-year-old has been part of snippets of first-team action for the Merseyside outfit, but not enough to earn a regular spot in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
As a result, the teenager joined Sheffield United in the summer but has struggled to force his way into contention.
Woodburn had cameos in the Blades’ first six Championship matches, but since the team’s 3-0 win over Bolton Wanderers in August, the attack-minded star has played just 13 minutes of league action.
In fact, the Liverpool starlet recently played in a Premier League 2 match for his parent club in order to get some game time.

Elsewhere, the likes of Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent are thriving at their respective loan clubs, so we asked you if Liverpool made a mistake in sending Woodburn to Bramall Lane.
The majority of fans continue to back the decision, but there are a handful that believe Liverpool have managed the youngster in the wrong way.
