A number of Championship clubs are weighing up a move for Boreham Wood striker Morgan Ferrier when the transfer window reopens in January, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Ferrier has impressed at Boreham Wood so far this season after joining the club in the summer.

The powerful and pacy forward has scored eight goals in 17 appearances in all competitions this season, including one in the FA Cup draw with Notts County.

Ferrier's displays for National League side Boreham Wood have not gone unnoticed higher up the football pyramid with scouts from the Football League keeping tabs on his progress at Meadow Park.

Cardiff are understood to be among several Championship clubs to have sent scouts to watch Ferrier in action and they are considering a move for the former Arsenal and Crystal Palace youngster to bolster their attacking options in the New Year.

Ferrier is out of contract at the end of the season after initially only signing a one-year deal upon his arrival at Boreham Wood and his suitors are aware they might be able to land for a bargain fee due to his contract situation.

Boreham Wood claim they have no plans to lose any of their squad, including Ferrier, but the non-league club would find it hard to turn down a sizeable offer for the striker in January rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.
