Alex interested in Lowe return

Crewe manager Steve Davis has expressed an interest in bringing

MK Dons striker Ryan Lowe back to the club on loan.

Lowe, who played for Alex between 2006 and 2008, was recently

touted for a spell away from Milton Keynes even through League One

leaders Tranmere had an approach rejected a fortnight ago.

Davis also made tentative enquiries over the 34-year-old at the

time and suggested he is ready to make contact with Dons boss Karl

Robinson amid a number of injury concerns in the Railwaymen

squad.

“I spoke with an agent of Ryan a few weeks ago when it was

thought he could be available but we had enough options at the time

and I wanted to play our own players,” Davis told his club’s

official website.

“I think Ryan is closer to their team now than he was then. He

came on as a substitute at the weekend, so I would have to speak

with Karl about his availability and how much they would want of

his wages.

“I am not sure they would let him out but Ryan is the type we

would be interested in. He has experience, has been prolific at

this level and certainly knows where the goal is. We know he is a

good player and if he was available and at the right price then he

is someone we would consider certainly.

“We tend to get offered young ones and it is not easy getting

the ones or type you want. We have made a few enquires and we’ll

see what happens, but I have always said that we will only do

something if it improves us.”
