Skysports.com can reveal that Gillingham striker Darius Henderson has handed in a transfer request at The Priestfield.
Henderson is seeking to leave the League One club due to personal reasons.
The powerful striker admitted it was a tough decision to hand in the request.
"I have handed in a transfer request this morning," Henderson told skysports.com.
"It is nothing against the club; it is for personal reasons that I have handed in the request."
The news has alerted a number of clubs to Henderson's possible availability with the likes of Swindon, Sheffield Wednesday, Doncaster Rovers and Bristol City all keen on signing the player.
All four clubs expressed an interest in signing Henderson last year and they have been tracking his situation ever since.
Henderson enjoyed a successful loan spell at Swindon last season, scoring five goals in six games, and The Robins were keen on making the move permanent, only for the deal fail to materialise.
Robins boss Andy King is thought to be keen on rekindling his interest in Henderson, but could face competition from Wednesday, Doncaster and Bristol City, who are in the market for a new striker following the departure of Leroy Lita.
Henderson is now weighing up his options before he decides where to move on.
