Skysports.com understands Carlisle ace Karl Hawley could be on the move before the close of the transfer window with several championship sides chasing his signature.
Carlisle are thought to be reluctantly ready to do business for top scorer Hawley this month.
Hawley's current contract expires in the summer and the striker has informed them he will not be signing the new deal on offer at Brunton Park.
Carlisle are now contemplating cashing in on the talented forward rather than risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season.
The news has alerted a number of championship clubs who could make a move for the free-scoring forward.
Ipswich, Norwich and Leicester are all thought to be admirers of Hawley and are weighing up bids for the 24-year-old.
