Interest mounts regarding Dunfermline defender Richards-Everton

HITC Sport understands interest is growing in the Dunfermline player.

Several clubs in England and Scotland are tracking Dunfermline defender Ben Richards-Everton, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

The 24-year-old has been an integral part of Dunfermline’s success so far this season and his consistent performances have attracted interest from clubs both north and south of the border.

The Scottish League One leaders have kept 12 clean sheets so far this season and in the process set a new club record of six consecutive shut-outs.

The left-footed 6ft 5in central defender has played in every game this season since joining the Pars in the summer.

He has quickly established himself as a fan favorite and is renowned for his aggressive, no-nonsense style of defending.

Richards-Everton has been named in the SPFL team of the week on four occasions already this season and he is widely regarded as one of the best central defenders outside the Scottish Premiership.

His composure in possession is thought to have impressed several potential suitors.

The Englishman’s contract expires at the end of the season and it is believed that several clubs have expressed an interest in signing the dominant centre-half on a free transfer in the summer.
