Blackburn Rovers and Burton Albion are both tracking Plymouth Argyle defender Sonny Bradley, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Bradley has been in superb form for Plymouth this season since his arrival on a free transfer from Crawley Town last summer.

The 25-year-old has quickly established himself as a key player in Derek Adams' side and Bradley has been a colossus for Plymouth in central defence.

Bradley enhanced his growing reputation with two outstanding displays in the FA Cup clashes with Liverpool, helping Plymouth earn a 0-0 draw at Anfield with a man-of-the-match display before the Premier League side edged the Pilgrims out 1-0 in the replay.

The towering centre-half was the hero for Plymouth in the weekend win at Cheltenham as he scored both goals in a 2-1 victory, including an injury-time winner.

Bradley's performances have not gone unnoticed higher up the football pyramid with Championship duo Blackburn and Burton both keeping tabs on the former Hull City youngster.

The 6ft 5in defender is in the final six months of his contract at Home Park and his suitors are on alert that they could possibly land him for a cut-price fee this month

Plymouth are keen to keep hold of Bradley as they look to maintain their bid for promotion from League Two this season, but they are bracing themselves for interest in the defender before the transfer window closes.
