Ross Barkley looks likely to be spending the second half of this season out on loan gaining valuable experience and opportunities away from Everton.
The 19-year-old spent time during the first part of the season on loan with Championship side Sheffield Wednesday and mostly impressing winning the player of the month award.
After 13 appearances and 4 goals, he was eventually recalled to Everton following David Moyes's squad being hit with a number of injuries.
He's been an unused substitute for the majority of that time but he did make two short sub appearances against Stoke and Chelsea last month.
"We have to remember he is a young boy and we`re bringing him on. He missed a bit of football but I will continue to edge him nearer to our first team. When the right opportunities come and I think it`s the right time, I will do that. Moyes told The Echo.
Tonight's FA Cup clash with Cheltenham is certainly the right chance to do that, but after this evening will Barkley's immediate future be out on loan once again?
"If I don`t get him enough of them (opportunities) I will put him back on loan. That`s my thoughts. Probably people can see where he is needing the games and where he is still needing more experience. The boy is going to be a very good player but he is still young and still young maturity wise and we have to be wary of that.
"We`ve no problem with boys making mistakes, but you don`t want to make mistakes that cost the team, especially when we are in such a good position. It`s something I have to balance. When can I give him the opportunities when maybe the mistakes aren`t so important? If I can`t find those times then I will have to let him go back on loan and let him learn more somewhere else."
