Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has confirmed he will only allow players to leave on loan if he thinks his squad will be able to cope.
Blackpool want to re-sign Jonjo Shelvey after the midfielder impressed during a stint at Bloomfield Road earlier in the season.
And the likes of John Flanagan are among other young, fringe players who could also benefit from a temporary move away from Anfield.
But ahead of Thursday's loan deadline for Football League clubs, Dalglish is wary of stretching his Carling Cup winners and FA Cup semi-finalists amid a busy schedule.
"The fixtures come up thick and fast and we just have to play what is in front of us," said the Scot ahead of Wednesday night's Premier League game at Queens Park Rangers.
"The strength of the squad we have is going to be invaluable between now and the end of the season.
"We have to make sure we are right first before we consider letting anyone go on loan.
"We have a lot of games coming up and there are a lot of very good youngsters who would benefit from going out, but this club has to come first and if that is the case then the answer (to any loans) would be no.
"But if we can help their development then we will."
