Bournemouth striker Warren Feeney has revealed he would be interested in a possible move to Stockport.

The talented forward is out of contract at the end of the season and could leave on a free transfer.

The Northern Ireland international admitted he would be tempted to move to Stockport and join up with former international boss Sammy McIlroy.

"I have heard about interest from Stockport before, and I would like to join them," Feeney told the Stockport Express.

"They've got a great set-up up there and I know Sammy McIlroy and Danny Griffin from when I've been on international duty.

"I did see Sammy McIlroy briefly at the weekend, but we only had a wee chat. They could well be on the verge of something big there.

"Sammy has done a great job in turning things around recently, and yes, I would like to part of their squad next season. But we'll just have to see what happens."

McIlroy confirmed Feeney was among his list of targets for next season.

"Warren's a good lad, he's on my list," said McIlroy.

"He is one of the targets that I mentioned when I first came into the job at Stockport.

"Obviously he's a Bournemouth player at the moment, but we'll just have to see the season out and see what happens."

Feeney's agent Frank Trimboli revealed that there had been a great deal of interest in the striker and that he was keeping his options open.

"Warren is out of contract at the end of the season," said Trimboli.

"We are talking to Bournemouth and hope to conclude a deal with them, but if we can't we will look at all the options."

Meanwhile, Bournemouth have handed trials to three players as Cherries boss Sean O'Driscoll looks as prospective new signings.

Ipswich's Mark Smith, Chelsea starlet Danny Jeffreys and Telford's Craig Stanley are set to feature in the reserves against Swansea so O'Driscoll can watch them in action.
