Millwall striker Neil Harris has been told he will not be offered a new contract and does not feature in boss Kenny Jackett's first-team plans.
Harris has struggled to hold down a first-team place
Harris approached Jackett in a bid to resolve his long-term future as his current deal expires in the summer.
"I told him I could not offer him a contract and that also, at the moment, he is not going to feature in my first XI," Jackett told Millwall's website.
"If he wants to go out on loan I am happy for him to do that."
But the door has not been completely closed on Harris, who is in his second spell at the club.
Jackett added: "If he wants to stay here and fight for a place in the team, I would be equally pleased.
"There is still a long way to go this season, and our experience with injuries and suspensions suggests there will be opportunities for players who are not currently in the team."
