Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell is on trial at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, according to Sky sources.
The 26-year-old has not featured for the Sky Bet Championship club since Chris Coleman took charge in November, with his last first-team appearance coming in September.
Sky Sports News understands Sunderland have offered to rip up Rodwell's £70,000-a-week contract and allow him to leave the club on a free.
Transfer Talk: Can Arsenal land Auba?
The Transfer Talk panel discuss whether Arsenal can clinch a deal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
But Rodwell, who has 18 months left on his current deal, indicated last week that he had no intention of ripping up his contract and would only leave the club if a transfer can be arranged.
Rodwell started his career at Everton and made 109 appearances for the club before moving to then Premier League champions Manchester City in August 2012 for an initial £12m.
He failed to establish himself at City during two seasons at the club and joined Sunderland for £10m in August 2014.
Rodwell, capped three times by England, has scored seven goals in 76 appearances for Sunderland during three-and-a-half years at the Stadium of Light.
