Chester FC defender Sam Hughes has emerged as a target for both Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday.
The 19-year-old is out of contract this summer and is expected to leave the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium via a tribunal following a fine season with Chester that saw him establish himself as a first teamer and become the youngest captain in the club's history.
Wolves, Swansea City, Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace have all been linked with the Wirral-born Hughes, and now Derby and Sheffield Wednesday have joined the race according to reports in the Daily Mail.
Chester rejected a bid in the region of £80,000 for Hughes in January from Barnsley and are hoping for something closer to £150,000 if it goes to a tribunal.
Hughes, who won two gongs at the end of season awards, was almost the subject of a bid from Swansea on deadline day in January but the Swans were unable to conclude other business quickly enough and held off on a move.
