Port Vale may be a very interested party after Newcastle United released defender and former loanee Remie Streete on Saturday.
Streete enjoyed a brief but successful loan spell at Vale Park which was curtailed by his recall to the Newcastle squad to cover for injuries.
Vale tried to resign the centre-half on loan in the January window only for United to send Streete to Glasgow Rangers instead.
Many Vale fans would feel that a partnership of Remie Streete with potential loanee Ryan Inniss would be a dream partnership for the new campaign.
Streete is one of three players to be released by the Premier League side.
