England will try to reintegrate into the bowling set-up in a non-playing capacity during the one-day series in India, although they face a potential struggle because of opposition from Surrey.
The 31-year-old pace bowler has endured a frustrating spell with back and knee injuries and has not played for England since their 10-wicket defeat to Pakistan in the UAE last January.
Tremlett will play no part in the five-match ODI series on the subcontinent but England believe he could undergo some valuable practice with the red ball and re-establish himself within the squad. , however, are unlikely to be enthusiastic about any departure.
Tremlett, who is neither on a central or incremental contract, played one first-class match for his county last season, when he took one wicket for 82 runs in 27 overs against Lancashire. England have a number of bowling options for the upcoming summer Ashes series against Australia but hope that Tremlett will be back to his best for the corresponding winter series that begins in November at The Gabba.
Tremlett excelled when he was called into the England side for the third Ashes Test in Australia during the 2010-11 series, taking eight wickets in Perth and keeping his place for the matches in Melbourne and Sydney. England's bowling coaches feel his pace and bounce are perfectly suited to Australian conditions.
However, he has undergone a slow rehabilitation process following a back operation that came as a consequence of an injury sustained during his last game for England in Dubai. Tremlett was forced to withdraw from the second Test of that ill-fated series and underwent surgery, but during his recovery he sustained a knee injury and has had another operation.
Surrey, though, are unlikely to want him to leave for India as they hoped he would join their pre-season tour of South Africa. Tremlett signed a new one-year contract with the county in September despite only playing a single County Championship match last season and is on Surrey's payroll following the loss of his ECB central contract.
At the time of signing that new deal, he said: "I'm very keen to get back out there and almost start a new chapter in my career. I still feel as though I have a lot to offer at Surrey and hopefully again at England at some point."
