Patrick McEleney could be set for a dramatic return to Dundalk FC just six months after leaving to join Oldham Athletic.
LMFM are reporting that McEleney, who was at Oriel Park for last night's victory over Limerick, has held talks with the Lilywhites about potentially re-joining in the summer transfer window.
The Derry man has endured a frustrating time at Oldham, scoring just once as Richie Wellens' side were relegated to League Two.
