CHESTER City are looking to bolster their attacking options by signing two quality wingers, writes David Triggs.
The Blues have made an approach to Rotherham United for Ritchie Partridge and are also interested in Oldham Athletic's Paul Edwards.
City chairman Stephen Vaughan said: 'A letter has gone in the post to Rotherham requesting to speak to Ritchie Partridge. If Rotherham give us permission, it will just be a case of sorting out personal terms.
'We have made enquiries to Oldham about Paul Edwards and have spoken to his agent about personal terms.
'If we can convince him to drop a level, he will become a Chester player.'
Partridge, 26, started his career with Liverpool and had loan spells with Bristol Rovers and Coventry City before signing for Sheffield Wednesday in 2005. The Irishman was linked with a move to Chester last summer but instead opted to join the Millers on a two-year deal.
Despite scoring four goals in 33 appearances last term, the right-sided wide-man failed to prevent Rotherham's relegation to League Two.
Chester are believed to have turned their attentions to Edwards after being thwarted in their attempt to sign Kevin Ellison from Tranmere Rovers.
A direct and quick left-sided player, Manchester-born Edwards began his career with Swindon Town but is best known for a two-year stay with Wrexham.
The 27-year-old left the Racecourse in 2004 to sign for Blackpool and left for Oldham a year later.
He has been offered a new deal by the Latics after being a regular member of their first team last season but Chester face an uphill battle to convince him to drop down from League One to League Two.
City boss Bobby Williamson completed his first signing of the close season last Friday, securing Port Vale forward Nathan Lowndes, 30, on a two-year deal.
Young keeper Phil Palethorpe has penned a new one-year contract with the club and will provide back-up to regular number one John Danby next season.
