Hearts defender Andy Webster is to travel around Europe in a bid to find himself a new club.
The 24-year-old was transfer listed by The Jambos back in April when he decided not to sign a new deal at Tynecastle.
He is now embarking on a week-long tour of some of the continent's top clubs, with Marseille, Monaco, Rennes and PSV Eindhoven all set to receive visits.
Webster's agent Charlie Duddy has organised the trip and is hopeful that the effort will pay dividends.
"I'm in the process of looking at flights and planning just exactly how we'll arrange our club visits," Duddy told The Daily Record.
"These are all clubs who've expressed an interest in signing Webster. Hopefully we'll have something definite organised by the end of the week."
Former Scotland boss Berti Vogts is believed to have recommended Webster to several leading clubs, while George Burley is also looking to bring him to Southampton along with team-mate Rudi Skacel.
Having worked with Webster at Hearts Burley is eager to be reunited with him at St Mary's.
"We're also planning to speak to a number of English clubs," Duddy confirmed.
