Jo Kuffour is set to leave Bristol Rovers in the loan window after he failed to find a suitor during the transfer window.
The striker wanted to return to London but manager Paul Buckle is keen to get rid of Kuffour sooner rather than later.
He told BBC Radio Bristol: "He's definitely in the departure lounge. It will have to be a loan now the window has closed, we were confident he would go yesterday but sometimes players are not willing to compromise."
"It's a very small market for Kuffour as he wants to go back to London. We've had interest from League One clubs around the country but he's not interested."
