Martin O'Neill has confirmed that Aston Villa have received a bid for full-back Luke Young.
The 31-year-old is now weighing up his options, with Villa prepared to let him leave should he wish to do so.
It is believed that Liverpool are the club to have made their move for the former England international, with a £2.75million offer on the table.
Villa are prepared to let Young decide what his future will hold and will not stand in his way if he wishes to continue his career elsewhere.
They are, however, happy for him to stay and have revealed that he could link up with their squad heading for the Guadiana Cup in Portugal.
"There has been an offer from a football club, which Luke is mulling over," O'Neill told Villa's official website.
"If it doesn't materialise then he would also join us (in Portugal) because he needs to play some football soon."
"We will see how that develops."
Young joined Villa from Middlesbrough in 2008 and has made over 50 appearances for the club during his two years in Midlands.
He has seven England caps to his name, but announced his retirement from international football in February 2009.
