HITC Sport understands a host of Football League clubs are tracking non-league hot-shot Kristian Dennis.

Macclesfield loan star Kristian Dennis is a target for a number of Football League clubs in the January transfer window, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the potential deal.

The 25-year-old striker is regarded as one of the best prospects outside the Football League after impressing on loan at Macclesfield from Stockport this season.

Dennis has scored 14 goals in the National League this season, including a hat-trick in last weekend’s 5-2 win over Woking.

The talented forward enhanced his reputation as one of the best goalscorers outside the Football League with a goal in Macclesfield’s recent FA Cup defeat to high-flying Portsmouth.

Dennis began his career at Macclesfield making four League Two appearances for Macc before dropping into non-league.

After brief spells with Woodley Sports, Ashton United and Mossley he enjoyed a prolific spell at Curzon Ashton, earning a move to Stockport in 2013.

Scouts from Football League clubs have been flocking to watch Dennis after being alerted to his goalscoring exploits and several sides are weighing up moves to give the striker an opportunity back in the professional ranks.

Dennis is out of contract at the end of the season and cash-strapped Stockport would prefer to cash-in on him in January rather than risk losing the forward for nothing next summer.
