Lowe can leave relegated Chester

Chester City will allow star striker Ryan Lowe to leave the club on a free transfer following their relegation from the Football League. The 30-year-old, who finished the season as Chester's top scorer with 18 goals, joined from Crewe in July 2008 and has two years left on his contract. Lowe is believed to be interesting several League One and Two sides. Chester owner Stephen Vaughan is understood to have given several other players the option of leaving the club. Vaughan and City manager Mark Wright both wanted Lowe to stay but he is reluctant to drop down to playing in the Blue Square Premier. The former Shrewsbury forward, who is in his second spell with Chester, has already been linked with moves to his old club Crewe and Macclesfield, while Notts County attempted to sign him on loan in January. Chester's future remains uncertain, with Vaughan revealing this week that he has considered putting the club into administration. That would mean the club starting next season with a points deduction.
