Kilmarnock are facing a battle to hang onto midfield ace Jordan Jones, with a clutch of English clubs looking to lure him back south of the border, TEAMtalk understands.
The 22-year-old joined Killie last year after leaving his hometown club Middlesbrough, and he has flourished since moving to Rugby Park.
Now his performances have not gone unnoticed and clubs from both the Championship and League One are showing a real interest in the Northern Ireland youth international.
Championship duo Bristol City and Preston North End lead the chase for Jones, while there is also interest from League 1 Wigan Athletic.
Jones has one year left on his deal at Kilmarnock – although the club also have an option on him and could take it up to ensure they receive maximum value for the player.
