Championship interest mounts in Ross County's Liam Boyce

HITC Sport understands a number of clubs are tracking the in-form Northern Ireland star.

A number of Championship clubs are keeping tabs on Ross County hot-shot Liam Boyce, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Boyce, who is set to be part of Northern Ireland's squad for this summer's Euro 2016 finals, has been Ross County's stand-out performer this season with 17 goals and six assists in 24 games so far this term.

The 24-year-old's 13 goals in the Scottish Premiership makes him the third top goalscorer in the league and his performances have not gone unnoticed south of the border.

A number of clubs have been flocking to Dingwall to cast an eye over the former Cliftonville man and his suitors are weighing up moves for Boyce during this month's transfer window.

Boyce, who joined Ross County from Cliftonville in the summer of 2014, is in the final 18 months of his contract at Victoria Park and the striker's admirers could test Ross County's resolve to hang onto the Northern Ireland international.

Ross County are reluctant to lose their prize asset this month, but they are bracing themselves for interest in the free-scoring forward.
