Sunderland youngster Ryan Noble is hoping for a loan move away from the club, according to Sky Sports News.
The 20-year-old has recovered from a back injury to be a regular part of the Black Cats squad this season.
However, the striker's minutes on the pitch have been limited and he is said to be keen on gaining regular action.
A host of Championship clubs are believed to have made enquiries to manager Martin O'Neill regarding Noble's availability.
Noble has found the net on 13 occasions for Sunderland's reserve side this season.
