Motherwell are set to lose the services of loan star Yassin Moutaouakil in the New Year, skysports.com understands.
The French full-back is currently on loan at Fir Park from Charlton in a deal which is due to expire in January.
Well are very keen to see Moutaouakil remain north of the border, but interest is such that the 23-year-old could find himself in the Premier League come January.
Skysports.com understands that scouts have been flocking to check on Moutaouakil in action, as reports of his good progress have mounted.
Moutaouakil signed for Charlton in 2007, when the Addicks beat the likes of Lazio, Aston Villa and Everton to the signature of the then French Under-21 international.
However, things did not work out as expected for Moutaouakil and he joined Motherwell in the summer with the hope of reigniting his career, and that is what he has done.
Now at least two Premier League clubs are considering bids for him, whilst a host of Championship clubs are also readying moves and a switch back to England now looks highly likely.
