Jon Harley returns to Notts County

Harley played much of his career in the Premier League

Notts County defender Jon Harley could play his first game of the season on Saturday after a move to Australian side Melbourne Victory fell through.

The 31-year-old had been expected to join the A League side after a trial.

But he has returned to England and boss Martin Allen has said the ex-Chelsea left-back may replace the suspended Alan Sheehan against Stevenage.

Harley joined on a two-year deal in July 2010 but was made available for transfer in May.
