Burton Albion may look to send striker Marcus Dinanga on loan again next season to continue his development.
The Albion academy graduate has recently returned from a fine season-long loan at AFC Telford United in National League North, where he scored 25 goals, having bagged 34 in the Evo-Stik NPL Premier Division for Matlock Town in 2016-17.
Dinanga will feature for Burton during pre-season and is one of a clutch of five outfield players aged 22 or under in the current Albion squad.
But after two successful stints away from the Pirelli Stadium, the 20-year-old may benefit from another loan spell in non-League, according to Nigel Clough.
"I don't know about Marcus Dinanga yet - he'll come back in pre-season, we've taken up his option and we'll see," said Clough.
"He might need to go on again, to the next level.
"He's scored goals at Matlock, he's gone up to Conference North.
"An ideal situation is we'll have a good look at him pre-season and then decide if we can get him, if necessary, a Conference (National League) club or something.
"Can he score them again?
"He played a little bit wide for Telford this season as well, so he's had great experience, as Ben Fox has.
"Marcus Harness got it at Port Vale as well.
"It's a bit like Jacob Davenport - they've been out on loan, now they want to play. And they'll get that opportunity."
Time will tell if that opportunity for Dinanga this season comes with the Brewers or elsewhere.
Wherever he is playing - and likely scoring goals - the youngster's progress can be seen on and off the pitch by his manager.
"It's just nudging that level up a little bit for him each time, saying 'can he do it there?'" added Clough.
"Conference North to League One is a massive jump, and I wouldn't say he could come straight into League One and score goals.
"I'd say Marcus Harness, Will Miller, Joe Sbarra are ahead of him. But we'll see how he does pre-season.
"It's funny. You don't see him that often, he's mainly been at Telford because they are full-time.
"But when you do see him, he's grown up, physically. He's matured, even his face, you can see he's grown up a little bit, which is good."
