Lowe: Cheltenham interest
Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates has held talks over a deal for Keith Lowe after the defender was released by Hereford United.
The 24-year-old spent two separate spells on loan at Cheltenham from Wolves during the 2006/07 season and is available on a free transfer.
Yates, who signed Lowe in 2008 when he was boss of Kidderminster, has confirmed his interest in bringing Lowe back to Whaddon Road.
"I have spoken to Keith and his agent and he is away on holiday at the moment, but he is back at the weekend and is one I am interested in," Yates told the Gloucestershire Citizen.
"He was fantastic for me at Kidderminster and he is the right type. He is a good defender, who can play in the middle or at right-back and he is mobile and good in the air."
Elsewhere, Yates has ruled out a move for highly-rated Mansfield striker Jake Speight who has handed in a transfer request at Field Mill.
He added: "I know Jake and I have spoken to his agent, but the fact a fee is involved puts us out of the equation and he would have been a gamble."
