Oldham Athletic skipper Neal Eardley is a target for a host of Championship clubs, skysports.com understands.
Eardley is highly rated after breaking into the Wales set-up last season, playing in two Euro 2008 qualifiers.
The 19-year-old has attracted the interest of a host of Championship clubs with scouts from several sides watching him in action last term.
The versatile performer, who scored six goals last season, impressed during Wales' recent Under 21 clash with England and his performance caught the eye of interested observers.
Eardley has established himself as a key member of John Sheridan's side and the Boundary Park chief is determined to keep him at the club.
A number of Eardley's admirers are believed to be weighing up a move for the full-back this summer and Oldham would find it difficult to resist any substantial bids for his services.
