Peterborough United and Doncaster Rovers are eyeing moves for AFC Fylde's goalscoring sensation Danny Rowe, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Rowe was in sensational form for AFC Fylde this season, scoring a half century of goals in all competitions as the Coasters stormed to the National League North title.

The prolific forward scored 37 goals last season and he finished the calendar year with 55 goals in total to make him one of the hottest properties on the non-league scene.

The 28-year-old was rewarded for his stunning form in front of goal by being named the National League North Player of the Year and he also scooped several awards at AFC Fylde's own end of season awards.

The former Manchester United trainee's stunning form in front of goal has brought him to the attention of a number of Football League clubs as teams look to find themselves the next Jamie Vardy in the non-league ranks.

Peterborough have shown in the past they are ready to offer exciting non-league talents the chance to perform in the Football League and they have been keeping tabs on Rowe's progress, while Doncaster Rovers are also tracking Rowe as they prepare for life back in League One.

Fylde are reluctant to lose Rowe, but they are bracing themselves for offers in the former Fleetwood youngster with Peterborough and Doncaster Rovers ready to offer the player a return to the Football League.
