Crewe goalkeeper Steve Phillips is hoping to win a loan move away from the club in January, skysports.com understands.
The experienced keeper is keen to secure a move when the transfer window reopens in search of regular first-team action.
Phillips, who has yet to feature for Crewe this season, is back to full fitness after undergoing a shoulder operation during the close-season.
The 32-year-old has seen his road into the first team at Gresty Road blocked by loan signing from Chelsea Rhys Taylor.
Phillips is now weighing up his options and hopes to fix himself with a loan move next month as he seeks regular first-team football.
