Trio tracking Northampton winger Ricky Holmes

HITC Sport understands a number of clubs are tracking in-form Northampton winger Ricky Holmes.

Northampton attacker Ricky Holmes is attracting interest from a number of clubs after impressing for the League Two hopefuls, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Holmes has been Northampton's stand-out performer in recent weeks, netting five goals in his last nine games to help Northampton to the top of League Two.

The 28-year-old's rich vein of form has not gone unnoticed among clubs higher up the football pyramid with several sides keeping tabs on his progress.

MK Dons are weighing up a move for Holmes after the former Portsmouth man impressed against the Championship club in the recent FA Cup meeting between the two clubs when he scored twice in a 2-2 draw.

Rotherham United are monitoring Holmes' situation as they look to bolster their attacking options this month, while League One promotion hopefuls Millwall are also admirers of the player having watched him in action in recent weeks.

Holmes initially joined Northampton on loan last January before making the move permanent later that month and he scored ten goals in 34 appearances for the Cobblers.

Northampton are determined to keep hold of Holmes as they look to maintain their push for promotion, but are bracing themselves for interest in the winger before the transfer window shuts next week.
