Nottingham Forest, Wigan and Sunderland are lining up moves for highly-rated Luton Town defender Dan Potts during this summer's transfer window, sources have told HITC Sport.

Potts is regarded as one of the best full-backs in the Footbal League after impressing at Luton since his arrival from West Ham United in 2015.

The 24-year-old played a key role in Luton's successful promotion to League One last season and he was named in the League Two PFA Team of the Year.

The attacking left-back chipped in with seven goals and five assists in 45 appearances in all competitions for Luton last season.

His outstanding performances have brought him to the attention of clubs higher up the football pyramid and Luton are bracing themselves for interest in the player this summer.

Championship duo Nottingham Forest and Wigan are both looking to strengthen their left-back options and Potts figures highly on their wanted lists, while Sunderland are looking to rebuild following relegation and they see Potts as someone who can help their bid to win promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Luton are reluctant to lose Potts as they plan for life in League One next season, but his suitors are expected to firm up their interest and test their resolve with offers this summer.
