'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Alan's Eye On Preston?

We all know managers like to go back to their former clubs to snap players up, and Owls boss Alan Irvine could well return to Deepdale to bolster his squad for their League 1 campaign.

Preston have today announced their list of players that have no future at the club - and it includes some players that could very much 'do a job' in League One.

Stephen Elliott, Neil Mellor, Richard Chaplow, Eddie Nolan, Liam Chilvers, Chris Sedgwick, Darren Carter, Neil Collins will all be leaving Deepdale this summer.

And the news will surely alert former North End boss Irvine as he looks to totally revamp his Wednesday squad for the 2010-11 campaign.

Defender Nolan was at Hillsborough on loan in the latter stages of last season, signed by Irvine, and his deal could well be made permanent in the next month.

The rumour mill has also pointed towards Sheffield-born winger Sedgwick making the switch to S6 in the summer.

The rumour mill is set to up its gear over the next few weeks as clubs look to build their squads for next season sooner rather than later, and we'll have all the latest right here on Vital Wednesday.

Think nolan and carter would be good appointments for league1. Also would like gary teale and jay mceveley released by derby :D
SWFC_LUKE
my mate is a season ticket holder at derby and he says that mceverley is a good player, but says that teal is too inconsistent and not that good. would be happy with any of those players listed above.
Wednesdayforlife
Ideally Mellor and Sedgwick would be cracking recruitments for League 1.

Stephen Elliot is a good striker, who would be very good at L1 level. I'd be delighted with Elliot, Nolan and Carter from PNE, and maybe Collins. Bogdanovic, if interested would be nice
owl1
mellor sedgewick carter and nolan would be my choices
retfordowl1867
What about Alan Quinn. I hink he is being released at Ipswich. I'd have him back.
Radon Barrier
so would i radon, dispite him kissing the pigs badge

We havn't got a cat in hells chance of getting bogdanovic. Heffernan has been released, he would be a good League 1 striker.

ALAN QUINN CAN ***** RIGHT OFF!!!!!!
smiggyswfc
Thing he could still do a job for us smiggy, also a handy scapegoat if it all goes Pete tong
duds
Whats wrong with Alan Quinn Smiggy
Radon Barrier
kissing the pigs badge thats wots wrong all who ask,that is degrading.
ollyowl70
am i on about the same quinn who we gave a career to, who kissed the scum badge and who ran the full length of the pith to celebrate when he scored the winner against us???????????
smiggyswfc
Why can Quinn f off?? Turner released him when he should not been released. He had to find football somwhere. Yeap lets sign half of the preston team some decent players in there esp Sedgewick, Mellor Nolan and Carter. I really want Austin from Swindon but can see a champ side having him.
jamesc1905
there is no way we will sign mellor, he has spent half his career injured so it doesn't matter how good he might be or has been we simply will not risk it
Hirsty's Shinpads
i agree he had to find football, but could of found it anywere and didnt have to carry off like he did once he was there, no thank you the little pig
