OP means Football manager, relax everyone.
We have to consider the schedule of the summer. Depending on who does well at Euro we might not have Gerrard, Hendo, Johnson, Downing, Carroll, Kuyt (if stays), Reina (possibly) for our Europa league game and preseason matches. That doesn't include the Olympics who will probably take Kelly, Shelvey, Coates, and potentially others.
We need to bring Cole and Aqua in and use them early before the deadline. Give them a chance to prove themselves to Rodgers, same with Pacheco (who came up in a Barca system and might fit well with Rodgers) and Adam.
Spearing should not be loaned, either kept to play in Europa and as a deep squad player or sold.
Rodgers may not have the entire squad together until after the PL season starts so expect lots of activity late on. I predict 2-3 signings before the preseason and 2 at the end of window once Rodgers has assessed the squad more. Also he should be bringing Sterling, Coady and Shelvey along this year.
As far as loan players I say loan Flanagan and Wilson to a PL team. I'm also excited to see if Suso's style fits well and Rodgers attempts to introduce him to the first team this year.

well we got a million for dirk...so i guess he wasnt far off
Picking up on the suggestion of loaning out younger players, interesting to read that Rodgers is quoted as saying that he has spoken to Huw Jenkins, the Swansea Chairman about loaning out promisding young players to Swansea
As long as the new Swans manager agrees that could be perfect for everyone. Loan our most promising emerging players to a Premiership team that already plays football in the style that we trying to copy. Smart move that
