STANLEY striker Lee McEvilly could be on his way back into the Football League after Accrington received a bid for the Northern Ireland international.
An unnamed lower division club is keen to add McEvilly to its ranks after he scored 15 Conference goals for John Coleman's side in the season just finished.
And if the offer matches Stanley's valuation of the 23-year-old it's unlikely the Reds will stand in McEvilly's way.
The former Burscough striker dropped back into non-league when he joined Accrington from Rochdale last summer.
And while his departure would leave a sizeable hole in the Stanley squad, McEvilly would be allowed to further his career and at the same time help balance the books at the Interlink Express Stadium.
A tidy profit on McEvilly, who joined Stanley on a free transfer following a successful loan spell, would give Coleman a bit more leeway in the transfer market where wages are concerned.
Coleman is believed to have a number of potential replacements in mind and already has the option of playing David Brown in an attacking role if the former Hull City and Hereford man agrees a new deal over the summer.
In addition, the Stanley boss has lined up deals with four players, although no new faces are expected to be officially unveiled for a further month.
The Reds could make further room for new arrivals with the departure of defender Steve Halford, who Conference North side Droylsden are still hoping to sign on a permanent basis after the 24-year-old ended the season on loan with the Bloods.
Meanwhile, Coleman could be alerted by the release of Cambridge United's Liverpool-born left-back Stuart Bimson, who played six games on loan at the Interlink at the start of the season.
However, former defensive target Darran Kempson, who played on loan for Stanley last season, this week agreed a new deal with local rivals Morecambe.
