Would it be better to loan out decent young players for them to get first team time or just leave them in the B team in order to get the full potential from them?

Taking into consideration i have superb youth and training facilities.

I know time playing in the first team for a club would help them but if the club i loan them out to has poor training facilities then would it be better to leave them in the B team?

Just started a new career with PSV and they have lots of young players with good potential.
loan out to lower clubs I found
I stopped loaning youngsters to lower league teams, because they usually get severe injuries. I let the ones with potential of 3+ stars play in my senior team against easy opponents, and the ones with less stars - well, sounds cold, but I really don't care about them.
Since I play in EPL so I keep them until they get HG status and the loan them out to lower team that will use them as starter
The decision has alot of dependables. League reputation, playing time, quality of training facilities and position played all affects the player's development. If the player is played outside of the agreed position, he'll also likely be training in a role which suits the position he's playing in, hence he'll gain needless attributes.

When I buy these 15 year old wonderkids, I usually let them play at my U19 team until they're 18 but betweeen the ages of 17-18, I give them a place in my senior team's rotation once in a while (mostly on league cup matches and the last two champions league stage matches, providing I won the last 4) and once they're 19, they're starting to get much more playing time. I don't let my wonderkids go through the B team because I can't control their training or playing time. My B team is a team by its own that functions individually and they will sometimes bring new players to the club without asking me, thus creating unwelcomed competetion. If my wonderkids are struggling for playing time because I have a very wide squad, I give them on a loan but only to a 4 star reputated league or higher (Serie A, Bundesliga, LIGA BBVA, Premier League) to a club with excellent training facilities or higher as a first team regular or a key player in my preferred position. I also loan players aged 16-17 to these clubs, considering these wonderkids are already that good to get regular playing time at high reputated clubs/leagues. If considering a loan, always check the team you're loaning the player to, both their squad and tactics. You don't want to loan an AMC to a team who don't even use an AMC in their regular formation. You should also check for competetion on the agreed position. Even if, let's say; Chelsea, wants my young AMR on a loan and they're willing to give him a regular spot on their starting 11 but they already have Oscar, Hazard and Willian who can play at that position, the first team promise isn't really guaranteed so I'd prefer to loan him to a smaller team.

Also, when tutoring, your tutor can play at the senior team while the tutee can play at the U19 team. However, a player in the senior team can't tutor a player in the B team.

Note that this is my way of raising youth players. Nothing is guaranteed or tested. I hope it helps.
