The Gold Coast Titans have admitted they will release their forward Joe Greenwood if he wants to return to the English Super League.
Greenwood, who joined the Titans last year, has not featured in the NRL in 2019.
The back-rower is not in Gold Coast coach Garth Brennan's plans and has been playing off the bench for the club's Queensland Cup team the Burleigh Bears.
Titans head of football Phil Moss told NRL.com the club will let him go back home if that's what he wants.
"We have had a couple of English clubs show interest and have said to Joe that if there was a good opportunity he wanted to pursue, we would be happy to let him go," Moss said.
"He has aspirations of playing for England but Garth has been honest with him and he's behind the eight-ball currently here."
A number of Super League clubs, believed to include Hull KR and Leeds, are keen to bring the Englishman back to Super League.
Brennan said Greenwood has to wait for his chance.
"At this stage Joe is in our plans and he has to just bide his time where he is," he said.
"It is about grabbing the opportunity when it arises. When you have players of the calibre of Kevin Proctor on one edge, we have picked Ryan James there a little bit and Will Matthews has been very good on that edge too.
"It is a matter of Joey having to wait for his opportunities. He's a great guy and he is certainly not getting pushed out of the club by us. If he wants to stay around and back himself then that's great. It's great to hear from me as a coach a player willing to back himself.
"Like everyone else he will judged on how he performs each week and if he gets the opportunity I'm sure Joe will grab it."
