Mark Milligan's agent will head to the United Kingdom for talks with English clubs about the out-of-contract Socceroo.
Milligan is a free agent after his two-year contract with relegated UAE club Bani Yas expired recently.
The 31-year-old, who played all three matches at the 2017 Confederations Cup, has been coy on his future over the past month.
FourFourTwo understands Milligan's agent Buddy Farah will travel to England for talks with clubs.
Farah declined to comment when asked the identity and number of clubs by FourFourTwo, but it has been reported there's interest in Milligan from Championship pair Burton Albion and Birmingham City.
Milligan, who can play in midfield and defence, would link up with fellow Australian Jackson Irvine at Burton.
Prior to the Confederations Cup earlier in the month, Milligan admitted there were a few options in the works, but talks were put on hold until after the tournament.
“I just want to be in a place where I can play the most football and be in the best possible condition come April, May next year,” Milligan said in Melbourne ahead of the Brazil match earlier this month.
“There’s a few things that we’re looking at. I’m in no rush to make a decision at the moment.
“There’s a lot of things that come into the decision making process."
