Manchester City's FA Youth Cup winning skipper Ben Mee fancies a move away on-loan this season.
"You don't know what to expect at the start of the season, anything could happen," the England U19 defender told City's website.
"I could go on loan or I could end up in the first team. But ideally I'd like to progress myself and keep getting better and better, wherever that may be, whether it's in the reserves or out on loan."
It's a refreshing change to hear a player keen to learn his trade at a lower level and Mee has no qualms about dropping down a division or two to keep learning.
"Yes definitely, I'd be happy to go out on loan, gain some more experience and just keep progressing really," he added.
"It's all vital experience, be it in the lower leagues or wherever, we're going to have some tough games and come up against some tough players which is all good.
"I've spoken to a few of the lads about it recently, Ched went out last season, he loved it and did really well. He's back now and everyone's buzzing about him.
"Shaleum Logan did very well out on loan last season too and got himself a bigger profile, and people in the game have heard of him so it's a great benefit."
