MK Dons manager Karl Robinson hopes to sort out the future of striker Jemal Johnson in the coming days.
Johnson is due to report for training on Friday after unsuccessful trials with MLS sides DC United and Kansas City Wizards over the summer but has been told he is free to find another club.
Robinson said: "JJ's in for training on Friday. I need to have a chat with him and we'll see where we go from there.
"The club needs to bridge a gap in its budgets, it's just what every club needs to do, and JJ maybe wants to play his football somewhere else."
