Leicester City have provided several high-quality loan midfielders to the Championship in recent seasons, with Tom Lawrence the standout man to swap the King Power Stadium for the second tier.
The Welshman was prolific during a loan spell with Ipswich Town, before moving to Derby County in a multi-million pound permanent deal this summer.
The latest man out of the East Midlands city is young Harvey Barnes, a 19-year-old Burnley-born left midfielder currently setting the division alight with Barnsley.
In only twelve league starts this season, Barnes has notched an impressive five goals and four assists, helping the Tykes clear of the relegation places.
Barnes looks to be the real deal, and other Championship sides are sure to be monitoring his progress.
Two clubs that are in desperate need of a player of Barnes’ ability are Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United, with both clubs currently occupying positions outside of the top-six.
The Yorkshire sides had been touted as contenders for automatic promotion this term, but have thus far failed to live up to their billing in the league.
Barnes would inject a real air of quality into the faltering squads, and summer moves for the youngster could certainly be on the cards.
Barnes is a long way off breaking into the first team set-up with his parent club, but manager Claude Puel will be keen to monitor his progress in the coming years.
Hence another loan move could be on the cards next season, and the Owls and the Whites must make sure they are at the front of the queue should this prestigious young talent become available for a loan switch once more.
