Accrington Stanley have rejected bids from Rotherham and Peterborough for striker Kayden Jackson, while Preston North End and Ipswich Town have made enquiries for the forward this summer, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Jackson's future at Accrington has been the subject of conjecture this summer in the wake of his success at the club last season.

The 24-year-old was instrumental in Accrington's surprise League Two title success last season with 15 goals and 16 assists in his debut campaign at the club.

Jackson's impressive performances have unsurprisingly brought him to the attention of clubs higher up the football pyramid as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Championship new boys Rotherham launched a bid for Jackson as they looked to strengthen their forward line, while League One Peterborough had earmarked Jackson as a potential replacement for the in-demand Jack Marriott.

Preston enquired about Jackson as they looked to add to their strikeforce, while Ipswich boss Paul Hurst is a big admirer of Jackson having worked with him during his time in charge of Grimsby.

Accrington are reluctant to lose Jackson as they prepare for life in League One and they are demanding over £1million for the speedy forward.

It remains to be seen if any of Jackson's suitors will test Accrington's resolve again before the close of the transfer window.
