Everton midfielder Beni Baningime is highly rated by the club and was given several first-team opportunities last season.
After making his debut in October 2017, the young central midfielder has since gone on to make 11 first-team appearances.
But since Marco Silva arrived in the summer, Baningime has not been given a look-in.
Baningime has not played a single game this season. And the arrival of Andre Gomes further pushed the talented starlet down the pecking order at Goodison Park.
With Morgan Schneiderlin, Tom Davies, Idrissa Gueye and James McCarthy also competing for central midfield spots, Baningime’s route to the first-team looks blocked.
This is why the 20-year-old should seek a loan move when the transfer window re-opens in January.
In order to take his career to the next level, Baningime needs to show Silva that he can perform at senior level.
With first-team opportunities looking slim at Everton, he needs to showcase his ability elsewhere.
The DR Congo born midfielder will not be short of suitors as he has previously demonstrated his talent when given first-team chances.
The combative midfielder signed a four-year deal in the summer and Everton still rate him highly for the future.
But the best option for Baningime in the short-term is to try his luck with a loan move.
