Ajose: Great form
Bury face a huge battle to keep hold of Manchester United loan star Nicky Ajose, skysports.com can reveal.
19-year-old Ajose, an England youth international, has performed brilliantly since moving to Gigg Lane on loan in September.
The young forward has scored six goals in just 13 games so far, and his performances have brought him to the attention of a number of clubs.
His displays have also pleased his parent club, who have also offered him a new contract at Old Trafford.
Ajose's current loan deal with Bury expires on Monday, and it seems he could have played his final game for the Shakers with interest arising in both the Championship and League One.
Barnsley and Charlton are believed to be among the teams looking closely at him, although it is understood up to 12 clubs could be ready to approach United.
