Swindon braced for Nicky Ajose bids

Swindon Town

HITC Sport understands a host of clubs are tracking the former Manchester United youngster

\

Nicky Ajose is being targeted by a host of clubs following his sensational first half of the season with Swindon Town, HITC Sport understands.

Ajose only joined Swindon in the summer when he signed a three-year deal after leaving Leeds United and he has wasted little time in proving himself at the County Ground.

14 goals in 23 games have followed for the Robins, but it is no surprise his form for Swindon has attracted interest from a number of Championship clubs.

HITC Sport understands that Preston North End, Bristol City and Rotherham United - all battling to beat the drop in the Championship - after seriously interest in the 24-year-old, and are ready to make bids for him before the end of this month when the transfer window shuts.

Sheffield United are also watching his situation closely as Swindon look to have a huge battle on their hands to keep their prized asset.
