Manchester United are expected to offer goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak and striker Mame Biram Diouf on loan to Football League clubs in the coming days.
With the transfer window shut for Premier League clubs, it is only teams in the nPower Championship or below able to give either player the first team football they both desperately crave.
The alternate option for either would be a surprise switch to Turkey, where the domestic leagues and transfer window delayed due to the match fixing scandal that has gripped the country.
Polish custodian Kuszczak has been unable to convince Sir Alex Ferguson he is worthy of a place in the team, with young Spaniard David de Gea recruited to replace the retired Edwin van der Sar rather than promoting from within.
Diouf was unusual signing at Old Trafford in summer 2009, and has never looked like troubling the first choice strikers.
A loan spell at Blackburn only yielded six goals in 29 appearances, and Man Utd will be happy to get both players off their books with hope they can secure permanent transfers later down the line.
