Sheffield United and Chris Wilder made a thoroughly impressive return to the Championship last season after dominating League One the year before.
The Blades pushed for a playoff spot all season but fell away in the last few weeks of the campaign.
But now Wilder is assembling a squad that he thinks will be capable of going that step further next season and pushing his club into the promotion picture.
This will involve bringing in new faces but it will also involve shipping out some of the dead weight in the squad.
Ageing members such as Clayton Donaldson and James Hanson have left the club on free transfers as Wilder gets set to freshen up his squad.
But what about the players who are not quite ready yet? Here are three promising players Sheffield United should be loaning out this summer.
