As is always the case at a club like Tottenham Hotspur, there are plenty of players who have been allowed out on loan this season in a bid to aid their development.
Despite not bolstering the squad with a single signing in the summer transfer window, manager Mauricio Pochettino clearly felt his squad was strong - and deep enough - to cope with the demands of the Premier League, Europe and cup competitions this season to loan out some of the club's biggest prospects.
The likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers, Marcus Edwards and Josh Onomah have all agreed to spend the season away from north London, with some having already played several games for their new clubs this season.
In all there are currently five players out on loan - and here’s a look at how they have been getting on so far.

Cameron Carter-Vickers (Swansea City)
Injury meant the centre-back had to wait a few weeks before making his Swans debut and that came as a substitute in the goalless draw against Nottingham Forest on September 15.
Three days later came the American international's full debut, although he was on the losing side as City fell to a 1-0 loss away at Stoke City in a meeting between two of the three clubs relegated from the Premier League last season.
Swansea earned a credible 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium last month but Carter-Vickers was an unused substitute and he hasn't featured in the last two Championship games.

Samuel Shashoua (Atletico Baleares)
This loan move surprised many. An MLS switch had been mooted, but Shashoua made the move to Spain this summer.
A talented, creative midfielder who managed to earn himself a spot on the bench for the Premier League match at Leicester City last year, Shashoua hasn't had much opportunities to impress in Spain just yet.
His debut came as a second half substitute Ejea, before playing 57 and 12 minutes against Sabadell and CF Peralada-Girona B respectively. He was finally on winning side for Atletico Baleares against UB Conquense last time out - a game in which he scored in.

Marcus Edwards (Exclesior)
football.london understands that potential moves to Championship clubs in England were overlooked in order to secure Edwards a move to a club where he could earn himself regular football all season.
The Dutch league was chosen due to the technical levels of the players in the Eredivisie and Edwards certainly seemed to look the part during his promising debut from the bench against ADO Den Haag at the beginning of the month.
He followed that up with an assist vs Willem II last time out, played the entire 90 minutes of the 3-3 draw against Heerenveen and 71 minutes of the 1-0 win over VVV-Venlo last time out.

Connor Ogilvie (Gillingham)
Ogilvie, who can play at left-back or in central defence, played his first match of this season in the Gills' 4-0 defeat at Portsmouth in the Checkatrade Trophy on September 4.
The two sides are in the same group in the competition as Spurs and Crawley and Ogilvie played the full 90 minutes as a centre-back.
Has featured only for the Gills in League One as he played 90 minutes of the 4-2 loss against Peterborough United on September 22.

Josh Onomah (Sheffield Wednesday)
Injury scuppered Onomah's chances of working his way into Pochettino's thoughts as he missed out on the club's summer tour to the US as well as the start of the season. In his absence Luke Amos took his chance and made his Premier League debut at Newcastle.
Onomah had to wait until the Championship's loan deadline day before securing a season-long switch to Sheffield Wednesday.
Since then he's made three appearances against Stoke City, Nottingham Forest and West Brom - but is yet to taste victory with the Owls.
