Taddei had been banished to the reserves after he tried to engineer a move to Roma earlier in the season.
Siena president Paolo De Luca slammed the player for his conduct and insisted he would never play for the club again - despite the protestations of coach Gigi Simoni..
However, De Luca has now relented and is also prepared to sell the player in the January transfer window, rather than lose him for nothing at the end of the season.
"I've already told Simoni that Taddei is at his disposal from the away match at Udinese," De Luca stated.
"It's useless not allowing him to play. He can immediately play and he can go where he wants in January too.
"It's a decision that is up to the player. The choice will be down to him."
Roma are still thought to be keen on Taddei, although Juventus, Internazionale, Arsenal and Deportivo La Coruna have also recently been credited with an interest in him.
