Port Vale have released two more players as they begin preparations for life in League Two next season.

The Valiants saw their fate sealed after a goalless draw with Huddersfield on Saturday and have already let Mark McGregor go this week.

McGregor's fellow defenders Charlie O'Loughlin and Keith Lowe have now been informed that they too have no future at the club as they are no longer in manager Lee Sinnott's plans.

Lowe had been on a season-long loan from Championship side Wolves and will now return to Molineux at the conclusion of his current deal.

O'Loughlin has struggled to break into the first-team fold this season and as a result will now need to find himself a new club ahead of the 2008/09 campaign.

Sinnott is keen to trim his squad down ahead of a summer rebuilding program and admits that tough decisions have to be made in order for him to do that.


"Personnel change is part of football and we are in a position where we can instigate change and we have to take advantage of that," he told the club's official website.

"It is purely a footballing decision made on how I see us going, with the amount of money we have available and the squad size we have.

"It is part of my job to make those decisions and it is an opportunity to strip back, regroup and build strongly.

"I informed Keith and I informed Charlie, so it gives them a bit more time to get fixed up somewhere else and I wish both of them the best of luck.

"There will be more decisions made over the next couple of weeks before the end of the season, but like I said, that is part of my job."
