There were 33 loan signings made by Premier League sides across the two transfer windows last season. 18 during the summer then another 15 in January.

Like any transfer, varying amounts of success was achieved by the clubs who dabbled in this market. With the benefit of hindsight and limiting choices to only one player per club, below are the 5 worst loan deals of last season.
