Stockport County manager Chris Turner has revealed his interest in signing three players from League One clubs.
Turner confirmed to skysports.com that the Tranmere Rovers pair of David Beresford and Gary Jones, along with Southend United striker Tesfaye Bramble, are summer targets at Edgeley Park.
Midfielder Beresford is looking for a new club after Rovers boss Brian Little decided to release him from Prenton Park at the season's end.
Jones, 30, nearly made a transfer deadline move to League One rivals Oldham Athletic, but a toe injury shelved his plans of a switch to Boundary Park before the end of the campaign.
Striker Bramble, meanwhile, has already interested League Two clubs Lincoln City and Rochdale, with Dale boss Steve Parkin having held initial talks over a move to Spotland.
The news comes as the former Hartlepool United and Sheffield Wednesday boss confirmed his interest in signing former Sheffield Wednesday winger Matthew Hamshaw.
"We quite fancy Matty Hamshaw," Turner told skysports.com.
"We spoke to his agent and he knows of our interest. We're just waiting to see if they're interested in coming back to us."
The same cannot be said for another available midfielder in Lewis McMahon, who is also looking for pastures new after being released by The Owls.
With Damien Allen and Keith Briggs still in his squad, Turner added that it was 'doubtful' he would sign youngster McMahon for next season.
"Lewis is a good young player, but we're looking for experienced midfield players," added Turner.
