Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has confirmed interest in Lee Hills, but is not yet ready to send the teenager out on loan.
Hills, who had a spell on loan at Colchester United last season, has made just one late substitute's appearance for Palace this term.
The full-back has been linked with a move to Gillingham and Warnock acknowledged clubs have enquired about the 19-year-old.
However, Warnock says he will not allow Hills to leave Selhurst Park on loan until after Palace's Championship fixture against Middlesbrough on November 7.
Warnock told the South London Press: "I was prepared to let Lee go out on loan three weeks ago, but at the moment I'm going to leave it until after the Middlesbrough game - unless everybody is fit.
"There are a number of clubs after him. I want to loan him to get some games, but it's got to fit in with us."
