There is a small change regarding loan signing fee from Season 26 onwards. This is not announced as a separate news item since the change is minor.
Currently, a player's own club do not receive the signing fees for a player going out on loan to another club. This was intended to avoid any abuse of the loan system to transfer money between clubs. However, many of our users were requesting us to drop this, and let the signing fee actually go to the club that loaned out that player. This incentivizes teams listing players for loan a bit more, and encourages them to list better players on loan since they will bring in more money.
Furthermore, a lot of other restrictions to prevent abuse were actually implemented on the loan system since the game was launched, such as limiting loans between teams to just one per season, board restriction to allow a maximum of 10% of available balance towards a loan signing, stopping transfers between teams playing from the same network etc. There is also a limit of maximum 2 players that can be loaned out by a team every season.
Considering these, we have now decided to allow the signing fees from loaning out a player to be received by the player's own team. This change will be in effect starting Season 26, and we hope it promotes loaning out better players by teams.
