Chesterfield are braced to lose wing wizard Gboly Ariyibi in the coming weeks, HITC Sport understands.

Spireites sources have confirmed to HITC Sport that a number of clubs are now battling to try and land the American-born wide-man.

Ariyibi has been very impressive for the League One side since joining from Leeds United in 2014.

Reading and Rotherham United have already tried and failed with approaches, and they are both still actively trying to land the player.

But HITC Sport understands a number of other clubs are ready to make a move, and number were present at the Proact Stadium on Tuesday when Ariyibi helped Chesterfield to a pre-season win over Leicester City.

Burnley, Bristol City, Blackburn, Huddersfield, Fulham - League One rivals Sheffield United and Scottish giants Rangers are all believed to be keen on the 21-year-old - who is a US youth international.

Chesterfield do want Ariyibi, who has one-year left on his current deal, to sign a fresh deal but it appears more and more likely that he will be leaving.
