Alex Song is ready to leave Rubin Kazan because the Russian club's players have not been paid for four months, Sky Sports News understands.
Sky Sports News understands the former Arsenal, Barcelona and West Ham midfielder is wanted by clubs in England and Europe.
Song, capped 49 times by Cameroon, joined Rubin as a free agent in August last year after his contract at Barcelona expired.
The 30-year-old has scored once in 22 appearances for the Russian Premier League club.
