Every transfer window witness some temporary signings being made by clubs. Sometimes, a club doesn't want the player or the buying club do not have sufficient funds, or just want the player in question to gain some experience.
Here, we take a look at the top five loan signings who will thrive this season.
5. Ruben Loftus-Cheek
The young English midfielder is one of the best young talents present in the country and has the potential to become a great in the future. Loftus-Cheek has so far made 22 appearances in the Premier League for Chelsea with his performances convincing Crystal Palace to strike a season-long loan deal with the Blues for his services.
4. Tammy Abraham
With 26 goals in 48 appearances in Championship last season, Tammy Abraham became Bristol City's Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year and Top goalscorer. His eye-catching performances throughout the last season caught the eye of Swansea who wasted no time in signing him on loan for this season.
3. Kurt Zouma
Kurt Zouma returned from a very long knee injury in the mid of last season and surely did not get enough game time with Chelsea last time around. With much needed game time hard to get this season at Stamford Bridge, Stoke City pounced at the very first chance to sign him on loan for the season.
2. Ahmed Hegazi
The 6'5" tall defender earned his reputation in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations where he helped Egypt reach the finals and was included in team of the tournament. This caught the eye of Tony Pulis who managed to bring the defender to Premier League on season-long loan with view to make permanent.
1. Joe Hart
The England No. 1 spent last season on loan at Italian side Torino after Pep Guardiola confirmed that he was not in his plans at the Etihad. The shot-stopper who won two Premier League titles with City moved to West Ham United on loan in the summer, with the Hammers having the option of making the deal permanent later.
