Burnley are actively seeking to loan out midfielder Kevin McDonald, according to manager Brian Laws.
The 21-year-old joined the club from Dundee in 2008 but has only had 23 minutes of first-team action this season, scoring after coming off the bench against Morecambe in the Carling Cup.
"Kevin has maybe fallen from grace a wee bit," he told the club's official website. "He has found himself out of the first XI and difficult to get on the bench - that's how difficult it is to break into this squad.
"The competition in midfield is as intense as anywhere and everyone is performing well.
"That makes it difficult to involve Kevin in some capacity, so we have talked about getting him out on loan if we can and we are actively trying to do something."
