Stevenage striker Matt Godden is attracting interest from a number of Championship and League One clubs, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Godden has been a revelation for Stevenage this season after joining the club last summer from National League South side Ebbsfleet.

The skilful forward has scored 16 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions so far this campaign, including eight strikes in his last seven games.

Godden's goalscoring exploits have been instrumental in leading Stevenage's push for promotion from League Two with the club currently sitting in ninth spot in the table just two points outside the play-off positions.

The 25-year-old was rewarded for his fine form by Stevenage with a new two-year deal in December as they looked to secure his long-term future.

However, Godden's displays have not gone unnoticed higher up the football pyramid with Championship and League One clubs keeping tabs on the former Scunthorpe youngster.

Scouts have flocked to the Lamex Stadium this season to cast an eye over Godden and his suitors are weighing up a move for the striker in the summer and are ready to test Stevenage's resolve to keep hold of the player.
