Former Manchester City youngster Abdul Razak is interesting Doncaster Rovers, report the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old came through the ranks at City - where Rovers boss Paul Dickov has strong links.

Razak, who left West Ham last January after failing to make an appearance for the Hammers, is currently playing for Greek side OFI Crete after leaving City for Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013.

During his time in England he had loan spells at Portsmouth, Brighton and Charlton.

When asked about the possibility of adding new faces in the January window, Dickov has remained coy and instead pointed to the fact that he now has an almost fully fit squad to pick from.

He is working on a tight budget with little room for manoeuvre - although, in an ideal world, midfield is a position he would like to strengthen with Dean Furman set to be away for at least four weeks at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Rovers have also been linked with highly-rated Liverpool midfielder Ryan Kent.
