Skysports.com understands that Reading are prepared to listen to loan approaches for Brynjar Gunnarsson.
The Iceland international has been with the Royals since 2005, making almost 150 appearances for the club.
He has, however, fallen down the pecking order and has found first-team opportunities limited this term.
The 35-year-old is keen to find regular football before his contract expires in the summer and hopes a loan switch will allow him to showcase his talents.
A vastly-experienced performer, the former Stoke and Nottingham Forest man is able to operate in a number of positions.
Gunnarsson has already spoken with Reading boss Brian McDermott about his situation and has been informed that the door is open should a suitable offer arise.
His representative Olafur Gardarsson told skysports.com: "He has spoken with the manager and has been given permission to go out on loan. His contract will expire in June.
"He is mainly a holding midfielder but can also play at centre-back. Yesterday [in Reading's 1-0 FA Cup victory at Goodison Park] he played as a right-back against Everton."
