Ipswich winger Gary Roberts could be set for a return to Accrington Stanley after being transfer-listed by Town boss Jim Magilton.
The 24-year-old left Stanley for Ipswich in January 2007 after an initial loan spell but has failed to establish himself at Portman Road.
Although Roberts made 21 league appearances for Town last term, 11 of those were from the bench and he was allowed to join Crewe on a one-month loan deal during the second half of the season.
"We have been speaking to Gary - the manager talks to him a lot anyway," chairman Eric Whalley told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
"I think he is available on a free and he is someone we have spoken to, so we will have to see what happens."
