Just looked and Chelsea have 31 players out on loan, two years ago they had 38 players out on loan. No wonder the PL teams need all the TV money, they need it to pay all the wages if this is how the majority of them run the clubs. A lot of the clubs they are on loan to can't afford the wages a club like Chelsea can so they are subsidised by the parent club. It seems like they are harvesting all the promising ones from the lower league clubs then loaning them out to develop and keeping the best ones when they come back from their loan.

No, they then sell them and buy them back at a loss, or try to buy them back but can't afford them (we brunyn, lukaku). They then spend too much time on loan and want to go back there (courtois). Must cost them a fortune.
