Christensen off to Holland

The club's E mail bulletin reports:

'Promising Charlton winger Martin Christensen has joined Dutch side Heracles Almelo on loan for the rest of the season.

The Denmark U21 international, who turned 20 two days before Christmas, spent December training with the Eredivise side.

The right winger officially joined the club on January 1st when the transfer window opened, and will strive to help the team currently third from bottom in the Dutch top flight move away from danger.'

So if he is promising and good enough to help a Dutch top flight escape relegation, why isn't he good enough for the bench at Charlton? Do we buy too many 'promising' players and then find we can't play them. Or is loaning them out a deliberate system? I suppose going out on loan worked well for Youga.
