Nathan Ellington will not be returning to Preston next season.
The striker spent the second half of last season on loan at North End from Watford, scoring twice in 18 appearances.
He is a free agent this summer after his contract at Watford expired.
The 29-year-old used the social networking site Twitter to reveal that he would not be back at Deepdale.
"I won't be returning I'm afraid," said Ellington.
"Things were a bit complicated for the club which meant it couldn't happen. Phil Brown is a good manager and I wish him all the best."
