Nathan Ellington will not be returning to Preston next season after a less than prolific spell at Deepdale.
The striker spent the second half of last season on loan at North End from Watford, scoring twice in 18 appearances.
He is a free agent this summer after his contract at Watford expired.
The 29-year-old used the social networking site Twitter to reveal that he would not be back at Deepdale.
"I won't be returning I'm afraid," said Ellington. "Things were a bit complicated for the club which meant it couldn't happen.
"Phil Brown is a good manager and I wish him all the best."
