Skysports.com understands a host of clubs are chasing Leicester striker Louis Dodds.
Dodds is considering his future at the Walkers Stadium after enjoying a loan spell at Lincoln last season.
The former England youth international was offered a new deal by Foxes chairman Milan Mandaric before the appointment of Nigel Pearson as boss, but he turned it down so that he could train with the new manager before making a decision on his future.
The 21-year-old's future has been cast into doubt after Pearson omitted him from the squad for the pre-season training camp in Slovenia.
The news has alerted a number of clubs to Dodds' possible availability this summer.
Lincoln City, Bradford, Rochdale, Cheltenham, Darlington, Port Vale and Crewe are believed to have made enquires for the talented striker and the interested suitors are hoping to strike a deal with Leicester rather than having to go down the route of a tribunal to decide a fee.
