Crewe have granted striker Luke Rodgers' transfer request - and will allow him to leave for a small fee in the January transfer window.
Rodgers joined Crewe from Shrewsbury in the summer of 2005
The 24-year-old told BBC Radio Stoke: "It's time to go as the manager doesn't think I'm good enough to start.
"I don't want to be hanging around just picking up my money, I want to play."
Boss Dario Gradi added: "There are three or four players ahead of him now, so we will allow him to go in January if the right offer comes in."
Rodgers has scored nine goals in 38 first-team appearances for Crewe, of which more than half have been from the substitutes' bench.
