The 22-year-old full back was signed by former Rams boss Jim Smith on a season-long loan from Milan, but it is rumoured that Colin Todd is looking to send him back in a bid to trim his squad.
The arrival of Francois Grenet from Bordeaux has increased the competition for the full back berths at Pride Park, with the result that Daino is deemed surplus to requirements.
Derby have been in contact with Milan, who are said to be looking to find him another club, likely to be in Italy.
It is something of a surprise that Daino has failed to make an impression, as he was a hit during other loan spells away from Milan - at Napoli and Perugia.
