Fulham midfielder Sylvain Legwinski has returned home to France for a trial with Troyes, having been told that he can leave the Cottagers.
The 32-year-old has been at Craven Cottage since the summer of 2001, having joined Fulham for £3.3million from Bordeaux.
However, he has fallen down the pecking order in recent times and will be allowed to move on if he can find a new club, despite having another year left on his current contract.
Legwinski's agent, Craig Hutchinson, told clubcall: "Sylvain is not too proud to go on trial somewhere.
"He is keen to make sure that no doors are left unopened and is prepared to consider anything sensible in order to be playing.
"He is not frightened to show that he is in good shape and has got the right attitude. He is ready to prove himself.
"His preference is to stay in England but the fact is that England is very quiet at the moment.
"He does not want to sit for his final year at Fulham collecting his wages and either playing in the reserves or not getting a game."
