Tony Mowbray says Paul Robinson is back in his plans for West Brom, but is still concerned about Curtis Davies' mindset.
Robinson was left out of the 2-1 defeat to Burnley on Saturday after being strongly linked with a move to Wigan.
But the left-back has now informed Baggies boss Mowbray that he is keen to be considered for selection again.
"Paul at this moment wants to play for our team again," Mowbray told the club's website.
"Paul made his position clear at the start of this (transfer) window, but the goalposts seem to have moved to the point where he is telling me he wants to play football now.
"He's available for selection again."
In regard to Davies, who has lost the captaincy and asked for a transfer, Mowbray concedes the centre-half is not in the right frame of mind to play.
Mowbray added: "Curtis' is a slightly different scenario.
"There is that much going on around Curtis at the moment that he's finding it hard to get himself in the right frame of mind to play for our football club.
"As I've always said, I only want people who are 100% focused and ready to play.
"The interesting thing about Curtis will be seeing what frame of mind he's in come September 1 if he's still here.
"I don't know if he'll be here, and neither does Curtis, so we'll have to wait and see.
"We've had some discussions with clubs about Curtis. But there has not been a substantial enough offer for us to accept."
