Sky Sports understands a number of clubs have expressed an interest in taking Queens Park Rangers prospect Tom Hitchcock on loan.
The 20-year-old was snapped up by Rangers earlier this year after leaving Blackburn Rovers.
Hitchcock has previously tasted first-team experience during a loan spell at Plymouth, and now QPR are ready to send him out.
The young striker, who has been training with Mark Hughes's first team in recent weeks, is wanted by a number of clubs in League One and League Two.
It is expected he should finalise a deal in the coming weeks as he looks to impress and earn a new contract at Loftus Road.
