Charlton Athletic, Oxford United and Southend United are lining up moves for former Burton Albion midfielder Callum Reilly, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Reilly is available on a free transfer after leaving Burton now his contract at the Championship club has expired.

The all-action midfielder joined Burton on a two-year deal in 2015 after joining from Birmingham City and helped the club win promotion to the Championship in the 2015/16 season.

Reilly spent the second half of this season on loan at Coventry City after finding his first-team chances limited at Burton.

The 23-year-old made 20 appearances for Coventry during his loan stint at the Ricoh Arena and he impressed despite the club suffering relegation from League One.

A number of clubs from England and Scotland have expressed an interest in signing Reilly, but HITC Sport understands the former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has rejected offers from Scottish and League Two clubs.

League One trio Charlton, Oxford and Southend are all weighing up moves for Reilly as they look to bolster their midfield options for next season and build squads capable of challenging for promotion next season.
