Skysports.com understands Sheffield Wednesday are to make a move to take Queens Park Rangers' Lee Cook on loan.
The midfielder returned to Loftus Road for a third spell in January 2009, but has gradually tumbled down the pecking order since then.
Injuries have severely hampered his efforts, with regular spells on the sidelines preventing him from staking a claim for a regular starting berth.
He is, however, determined to prove his worth to Rangers boss Neil Warnock and recently expressed a willingness to go out on loan in order to rebuild his fitness.
QPR are believed to be open to such an agreement, with a short spell somewhere else likely to be beneficial to all concerned.
Wednesday are understood to be the first to make a move, with Alan Irvine keen to add experience to his options in the middle of the park.
The Owls have slipped off the pace in League One promotion race and feel fresh faces are required in order to inject new life into their bid to return to the second tier.
