Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has outlined his plans to utilise the loan market fully in order to help establish the club in the Premier League.
Pulis has lured the likes of loan stars Shola Ameobi, Carlo Nash, Chris Riggott, Patrik Berger and Lee Hendrie to the Britannia Stadium in recent years.
But the Potters chief is well aware he will only be able to sign two loan players from their Premier League rivals next season.
"I don't know whether we will bring in a couple of very experienced players with a wealth of top-flight experience or two very talented kids from one of the big clubs," said Pulis.
"It is something we will be assessing and it is an area we have got to make sure we use properly.
"Everyone has seen how important loan players can be over the past few years and next season will be no different. We have to get the right players in."
