Freedman has enjoyed great success with loan players at Bolton and Crystal Palace.
"Craig Dawson was playing out of his skin, Alan Hutton was playing for Villa, so if it goes according to plan, I'll be watching Chris on the telly in a couple of months too. Does it bug me? Of course it does.
"It seems to be a record that I'm getting where I polish people up.
"It goes back to James Vaughan at Palace, as soon as he went back he got a big move.
"You borrow these players, kick-start their career, they buy into what you are asking from them but then they return. It means you have to start all over again and that's difficult from a coaching point of view.
"You get a system but the next minute you are changing it again because different players are coming in."
