Bristol Rovers' midfielder Sammy Igoe is expected to complete a loan move to Edgar Street later today.
The 32 year old has been told he is surplus to requirements with the Pirates, with manager Paul Trollope telling the press: "Sammy has been told he can leave the club and his contract is not going to be renewed.
"He's on the transfer list to give him a chance to get out to another club before the deadline. He was an instrumental part of our success last season, but with the introduction of David Pipe and one or two others, his chances have been limited.
"At his age, he wants to play week in, week out and he's a little bit frustrated at not having that role at the club. He's been a good servant and whether he leaves in the next week or in the summer, we wish him well."
Igoe, a former Portsmouth trainee where he started over 100 games in six years, cost Reading £100,000 in 2000 before moving on to Swindon then Rovers after a disappointing spell at Millwall. The 5ft 6in midfielder has over 400 appearances to his name, and scored the final goal in Bristol Rovers' play off triumph over Shrewsbury last May.
He would come into the Bulls squad as the oldest player, beating Steve Guinan by nearly three months.
