I usually do the following for some bad newcomers that become great later on (e.g Andy Cole)
Buy them before anyone else gets him By the end of the negotiations period, either release him or keep him Releasing him will give him free time for development without him playing while keeping him maybe troublesome (especially since my league's packed with huge monsters, Man Utd, AC Milan, Barca, Inter, Liverpool, all the great teams I put them in my league)
I actually chose to keep him and now I regret it, I'll probably release him later on
