Grayson told the Blackpool Gazette: “He’s a player I’m aware of and have looked at.

“You know me, I don’t comment on too many things, but I’m still looking to bring good players to the football club. If that one happens, then it will be done because he’s a good footballer,” he concluded.

Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Moore is determined to bring in a forward to fill the vacant number nine shirt ahead of the transfer deadline at the beginning of September.

“We’re not sitting here scratching our heads thinking who is it to be,” Moore said. “We know where we’re going, we know who it is, we know who we’d like to bring it in. The player, talking to him, he wants to come and get on with his football.”
