Signed by Peter Houston last summer, the 23-year-old has struggled in his time at Westfield and barely featured under Paul Hartley when the manager, who he worked with at Dundee, took over in October.
Boss Paul Hartley said: “I think Alex is a player who needs to go and find first team football. He’s a player who is allowed to go and we have put his name out there.
“There have been one or two opportunities for him that haven’t quite worked out but I think he knows he needs to go and play football.
“We’ll wait and see before the window closes what the situation is.”
