AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said he would welcome the chance to send midfielder Mark Molesley out on loan.
Molesley has been struggling with an Achilles' tendon injury since the start of the season and hasn't featured for the Cherries at all this season.
It's the latest injury in a long line of injuries for the 31 year old in recent years.
Between October 2009 and August 2011 Molesley made just two appearances, totalling 16 minutes towards the end of the 2010/11 season.
A persistent foot problem kept Molesley out for around a year before an ankle injury in March 2011 delayed his return until the tail-end of that season.
At the beginning of last season Molesley was ready to return and featured for the Cherries in ten of the first eleven games of the season before a hamstring injury picked up against Leyton Orient in September sidelined him until November.
Molesley made just four further appearances for the Cherries last season and spent the last month on loan at League Two side Aldershot, where he made eight appearances (two starts) scoring once.
Howe now believes that another loan spell would be good for the midfielder, but emphasised that his future does still remain at Dean Court.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"Mark has trained near enough every day since we have been back and he has improved with each training session.
"He hasn`t had a lot of football recently, as everybody knows. We are pleased with him. He remains part of our squad and a big part of our squad.
"I am open to a loan spell with Mark. I think he needs to go and get football and I have had that conversation with him, so we will wait and see what happens...'
