Sunderland are reportedly planning to loan out many of their prized talents.
Sunderland have a number of budding prospects coming through their academy system currently, with hopes high for the future.
There have been suggestions that Sunderland could utilise many of their prospects in their first-team following relegation to League One.
However, it seems that the Black Cats are keen for their prospects to gain first-team experience elsewhere.
The pressure will be vast at the Stadium of Light next term, with Sunderland fans desperate to see an immediate return to the Championship.
The Black Cats are comfortably the biggest club in League One, and expectations will be high.
Sunderland, therefore, may feel that their youngsters are better off developing elsewhere, and there are a number of players who could leave on loan in the near future.
Denver Hume, Luke Molyneux and Andrew Nelson are all reportedly of interest, and Sunderland are open to the idea of loaning the trio out this summer.
