Forest Green striker Christian Doidge is being chased by a number of Scottish Premiership and League One clubs during this summer's transfer window, HITC Sport understands.

Doidge is at Forest Green after a permanent move to Bolton Wanderers fell through in January.

 

The 26-year-old initially joined Bolton last August on loan, with the deal to be made permanent in January, but Bolton's transfer embargo saw the move collapse and Doidge was recalled by Forest Green.

Doidge impressed upon his return to Forest Green, scoring 10 goals in 22 games to help the club reach the League Two play-off semi-finals only to lose to Tranmere Rovers.

The skilful attacker is entering the final year of his contract at Forest Green and the League Two club are bracing themselves for offers for their record goalscorer.

A number of Scottish Premiership sides and League One clubs are understood to have made enquiries about Doidge's availability this summer.

Forest Green are unlikely to stand in Doidge's way if they receive a suitable offer having allowed him to move to the Championship with Bolton last summer only for the move to fall through due to Bolton's problems.
