AFC Fylde 1

A number of Championship and League One clubs are chasing non-league goalscoring sensation Danny Rowe from AFC Fylde, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Rowe is currently the top goalscorer in the country with 28 goals for Fylde to help the Coasters to the top of the National League North.

The prolific forward scored 37 goals last season and he is regarded as one of the hottest properties outside the Football League.

The 26-year-old's stunning form in front of goal has brought him to the attention of a number of Championship and League One clubs as teams look to find themselves the next Jamie Vardy in the non-league ranks.

Championship trio Preston North End, Wigan Athletic and Rotherham United are all weighing up moves for Rowe as they look to bolster their striking options in January, while several League One sides including Bolton Wanderers, Shrewsbury Town and Walsall are also keeping tabs on the free-scoring front man.

Fylde are reluctant to lose Rowe, but they are bracing themselves for offers in the former Fleetwood youngster with a number of clubs ready to offer the player a return to the Football League.
