Championship promotion hopefuls Blackburn and Huddersfield are among the sides eyeing prolific non-league striker Kyle Wootton.

Notts County’s former Scunthorpe frontman Wootton has been in impressive form this season, netting 12 goals in 22 appearances and currently sits fourth in the National League top scorers chart.

Wootton is out of contract at the end of the season but a number of EFL clubs are weighing up a move before Monday’s deadline rather than waiting until a summer battle to sign the 25 year-old as a free agent.
