LA Galaxy midfielder Chris Birchall has yet to agree a new deal with the MLS club and can train with other sides from Monday.
Birchall lifted the MLS trophy with LA Galaxy last month and has made 66 appearances for the club since he joined in 2009, including nine play-off games.
It is believed LA Galaxy are still keen to negotiate a new deal with the Trinidad and Tobago international, who had spells at Port Vale, Coventry, and Brighton.
"I've loved my time at LA Galaxy." Birchall told Sky Sports News HD. "LA Galaxy is a great club but I will see what offers come from back home in England before making any decision on my future."
Birchall was not included in head coach Bruce Arena's list of protected players ahead of last month's MLS Expansion Draft, and could have been picked to join league newcomers Montreal Impact.
He travelled to Manila and Melbourne and started in both games of LA Galaxy's recent Asia Pacific Tour, after he missed their match in Jakarta because of a family emergency.
