Looking for a few advices on how to develop your players the fastest in FIFA 23 Career Mode? Then you are in the right place.
Choosing to develop players is a segment of Career Mode that often gets ignored easily. Most managers don’t quite have the right tools, and some managers just aren’t interested in the nitty gritty of it. However, if you invest some time into developing your players accurately, there is plenty to be benefitted from it.
Below, we have put together key tips and tricks on how to quickly get the most out of your players’ growth in FIFA 23 Career Mode.
1. Loan-Recall “Glitch”
The Loan-Recall trick is one of the fastest ways to assume control of your player growth in a short period of time. This trick not only allows you to take control of a player’s overall growth, but also his potential. How does it work? You loan out the player, then recall them, which increases their potential and sometimes even the player’s overall simultaneously. However, ensure that you save before you recall them because their potential can go the other way.
The changes occur when the player returns to your team, so it is important to note their POTENTIAL STATUS and VALUE before you recall them. For example, if your player had the status “Showing Great Potential” before he went out on loan, when you recall him it should say “Exciting Prospect”.
However, sometimes the potential status remains the same while his value goes up. This means that it has also worked positively, since potential status tags ranges between certain numerics, for example, “Showing Great Potential” means a player has a potential of 80 to 85. In other words, if your player had 80 potential and you used this trick amounting to a value increase while the potential status remained the same, it means he went from 80 potential to 84 potential depending on how high his market value increased.

The Loan-Recall glitch works best for players under the age of 21 as you can still see their Potential Status Tags. However, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t work for players over the age of 22 as you can always judge from their value perspective. If the player is older than 25, it usually just instantly increases their overall and even revives the growth of players at their peak. It is important to note that it only works for players aged 28 or under.
Using this trick, you can manage to increase your players overall and potential by at least 10 ratings each in a single transfer window. The older the player, the more patient you may need to be.
2. Normal Loans
Normal Loans are the most effective and simplest way to quickly grow your young players, especially youth academy players, as older players have little room for improvement as they are already established in your first team. Therefore, young players are more prone to struggle to break into the first team, so it is imperative to always look to loan them out to clubs that can offer a decent amount of game time.
Hell, game time doesn’t even matter, look to always loan them out of your squad, and it will accelerate their growth by 3x more than they are in your squad. Since FIFA 21, normal loans are broken to an extent that your loaned out players can grow by up to 20+ overall growth in a single season, even without game time!
~ Renew the contract more times, don't wait for it to expire (for ex. every 2 years);
~ Try the loan glitch if the player loses his potential (send the player on loan and recall him immediately);

As already suggested above, the normal loan growth tip works better for young players, most especially youth academy players. Therefore, promote youth squad players to first team before the end of January transfer window and loan them out immediately before it ends or at the end of every season!
If you are not going to loan them, and you won’t be playing them, it is advisable to not promote them to first team because dynamic potential will adversely affect their potential at the end of the season.
Thankfully, it’s easier to receive loan offers for youth players this year, meaning if you put a player on the loan list in January, you will quickly receive offers in the same month. Youth players loaned out in January transfer window will go up to 9+ in overall, whereas those who spent a full season at loaned out club can go up to 15+.
3. Position Training
The third fastest way to grow your players is Position Training/Conversion. As part of Player Development, players can be converted to other positions, allowing for more freedom and control to manage your squad. Position Conversions can also give a new chance to players that fall out of favour in their original role, giving you more flexibility with each player.
Position Conversion is mechanically similar to Player Development, but the key difference is that all growth XP gets directed towards attributes and abilities that would cater to the new position which the player is converted to.
Therefore, you may find that some players are already more effective in other positions than they do their original. For instance, if you convert Borussia Dortmund’s Raphaël Guerreiro from his original position of LB to CM, he will go +7 in overall, that is, from 82 to 89 in just 2 weeks.
However, in game, it can be tricky discovering which players in your squad are best suited to which positions. And that’s where websites such as FIFATracker helps you discover alternative positions that all real players in the database could be most effective in.
Simply head on to that particular player’s profile in FIFATracker.net and check the ‘In-game Ratings’ section, there you should see where the player is best suited. Retraining player positions is a great way to have more versatility in your team and make the most out of every single player.
4. Dynamic Potential
Comparable to real life football, the pace at which players develop entirely rests on playtime, form, morale, their age and abilities. FIFA 23 Career Mode is no different, provide a young player with great potential a good run of games and assist him perform on the pitch and he will rotate from a “Prospect” to “One of the World’s Best” at an accelerated rate.
However, keeping him on the sidelines persistently can have quite the opposite effect, it is therefore, up to the manager to make the choices that benefit his team the best.
Dynamic Potential was introduced back in FIFA 20 with the sole aim of creating various playthroughs in Career Mode and will allow your youth academy prospects and pre-existing wonderkids to grow into superstars if their performances guarantee that tag. Hence, allowing any player to exceed their original potential in FIFA 23 Career Mode. For more on how to get the best out of Dynamic Potential, you can check our guide here.
Hope these tips and tricks help you with assuming total control over your players especially at an accelerated rate. FIFA 23 is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
