Boston Town want to bring Jason Field back to Tattershall Road.
The left back has had an up-and-down season as he switched between the Poachers and Boston United.
And Town boss Ian Dunn hopes that the highs he had in blue could help convince him to return.
Dunn said: “He did really well for us but, for one reason or another, he didn’t play enough football after he left.
“When he was playing for us his confidence was growing with each match and he started scoring goals, something he didn’t really do before.
“We want to get Jason back in, and he knows that.
“It’s a shame things didn’t work out for him at United, but hopefully that will work out well for us.”
Field began the campaign with the Pilgrims, part of Jason Lee’s plans but unable to hold down a regular place due to captain Gareth Jelleyman being favoured in that role.
Frustrated and looking for more game time, Field joined Town on loan, before making his move permanent.
However, when Graham Drury took over from Lee - and with Jelleyman moving to Corby Town - Field was persuaded to return to the Jakemans Stadium.
Field started the next two matches under Drury, before the manager was sacked.
He then went on to start the next five matches for Dennis Greene - before falling out of favour.
Ironically, Field started in all Greene’s four Blue Square Bet North victories as United boss, playing 90 minutes in the three games where the Pilgrims managed clean sheets.
