Ross Barkley could be loaned out to a Championship team to give him game time.
On top of that Darron Gibson and Marouane Fellaini are nursing injuries, so the last thing David Moyes wants is to is to let Ross go without adequate replacements.
Moyesy said: "I'm thinking about getting him some Championship experience maybe in the coming month or two. I can't do it right now until the squad is strong enough. I want him to go out and play. It seems right.
"I remember David Beckham coming to play when I was at Preston. You've got to remember Ross is still a boy."
