HITC Sport understands several Football League clubs are chasing non-league defender Ollie Swain.
Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley and Peterborough United are among a number of Football League clubs tracking highly-rated Bedford Town defender Ollie Swain, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.
Left-sided central defender Swain impressed for Evo-Stik Southern League side Bedford Town last season and he has made just under 100 senior appearances in his career to date.
A host of scouts from Football League clubs have been keeping tabs on Swain for some time after hearing rave reviews of his performances for Bedford Town.
Peter Taylor: Manager of Dagenham and Redbridge
Former England and Leicester manager Peter Taylor, appointed at National League side Dagenham & Redbridge earlier this summer, is also believed to be very keen on Swain after he impressed during pre-season.
More and more Football League clubs are now looking at non-league players as they try to find the latest talents that can make the step up into the professional ranks and Swain could be the next to make that move.
