Republic of Ireland international Nick Colgan is being trailed by a number of clubs and a move in January is looking likely.
The former Chelsea star is currently on loan at Second Division Stockport County from SPL outfit Hibernian.
Hibs are desperate to get Colgan off their wage bill and are ready to let him leave for free when the window opens in January.
The likes of Leeds United, Sunderland, Wolves and Burnley are all now following his progress with keen interest.
The player's agent David Baldwin has now confirmed to skysports.com that his client is attracting interest.
"He had to come out from Hibs and go on loan, just to make sure he was not sat in the stands," Baldwin revealed.
"From a financial point of view they [Hibs] cannot afford to keep him and that is why they let him leave.
"He is now generating a lot of interest and there are a number of clubs watching.
"He has played a number of games for Ireland recently and showed how capable he is."
