Wolves said among 3 Championship sides sending scouts to watch striker Jason Cummings

The 20-year-old has been attracting plenty of interest from English clubs in recent weeks.

Wolves, Reading and Rotherham will all be sending scouts to watch Hibernian's crucial top of the table clash with Rangers at Ibrox later today to have a close look at January target Jason Cummings, according to the Daily Record.

The 20-year-old has been in sensational form for Alan Stubbs' men this season - with 10 goals coming in 17 appearances in the Scottish Championship - to help the Easter Road outfit sit second in the table. It is only goal difference, however, that's keeping Mark Warburton's side ahead at the summit.

And with today's huge clash potentially having a major say as to who goes into the new year with all the momentum, it's clear that the Championship trio are hoping to see a player that will thrive under that kind of pressure.

Wolves, Reading and Rotherham may well have further competition for Cummings' signature, however - especially if he puts in a match-winning performance like he did the last time the two sides met - with the Record claiming that Leeds are also interested in bringing the youngster to the Championship, while Eddie Howe is reportedly keen on a move for the striker in the hope of strengthening Bournemouth's Premier League survival bid.

While the three sides said to be sending representatives to today's game have had no problem finding the back of the net this season, they are all struggling to meet expectations. Reading and Wolves are well off the play-off pace, while Neil Redfearn's side are only out of the bottom three on goal difference. 

And with the January window just days from opening, the three clubs will be hoping that they see the performance of a player capable of propelling them up the table.
