League One newcomers Morecambe, plus fourth tier sides Oldham Athletic and Tranmere Rovers have all been linked with the youngster, along with Scottish top flight side Motherwell.

Rovers boss Richie Wellens will be focusing on the loan market to bolster his attacking ranks, believing that is where the value lies for the forward positions.

He has already made positive progress on a number of loan targets with agreements likely to come closer to the start of the season.
