Given would welcome a fresh playing chance elsewhere.
"The manager and the club have said they would let me go if somebody came in," he said. "It's quite clear with the budget the manager has here and the cutbacks to be made, but I still feel I've got plenty of time left in my career.
"Hopefully something will happen in the summer and I can get playing again.
"People do forget you, but that's why my time on loan at Middlesbrough was important. It went really well.
"It gave me a boost again. I feel I can still play in the Premier League.
"Maybe I could go to a bigger club as a No 2 keeper because I feel I've got plenty to offer. My future may be elsewhere, but the most important thing is retaining Villa's status in the Premier League."
