Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler is willing to listen to offers to loan out any of his fringe first team players.
The Gills have already sent out defender Simon King (pictured) to Plymouth and is open to offers for others who are not in his immediate plans.
Hessenthaler said: "Players want to play games and King is out at the moment. If we do get enquiries about players that are not in our team then there may be a possibility of them going out on loan."
Gillingham have 27 players at their disposal but can only include 16 in a match-day squad, with the number of substitutes this season being reduced from seven to five.
That means many of the squad are left in the stands during matches.
King this week extended his loan at Plymouth for a second month and will now be there up to and including their game on November 5.
King played 90 minutes during Plymouth’s last match and after almost two full years out with an ankle injury the minutes on the pitch will benefit everyone.
Hessenthaler said: "He will be tested at Plymouth but then he needs to be because he’s had a real long haul and the last couple of years have been very tough for him."
First year professional Alex Brown this week joined Whitstable Town for a month and will go into the team to face Faversham on Saturday.
