Skysports.com understands a number of Championship clubs are tracking Dundalk star Daniel Kearns.
The former West Ham youngster has been earning rave reviews for the Airtricity Premier League outfit.
The 19-year-old's performances have not gone unnoticed with several sides watching him in action this season.
The likes of Blackpool, Burnley, Derby and Peterborough are all thought to have scouted the attacking midfielder in recent weeks as they weigh up a move.
Dundalk are unlikely to stand in Kearns' way if one of his suitors firm up their interest and the player would be interested in a return to England if the right offer comes along.
