Lyndon Dykes Livingston TEAMtalk

Lyndon Dykes is at the centre of battles for his services on both the domestic and international stages, as a host of clubs look to land him this summer, TEAMtalk understands.

The 24-year-old Livingston striker bagged nine Scottish Premiership goals before the season was prematurely brought to an end, but it remains to be seem if he will be back with his current employers next season.

A host of clubs from England have been checking on Dykes and he did not disappoint as he took on a more central role.

However, he can play wide of a three too, and is not just a target man.

A Livingston source has told TEAMtalk that Derby County, Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers are amongst the clubs who have spoken to Livingston about his availability.

Livingston are looking to secure a deal worth £2million for their prized asset, about whom Middlesbrough, Millwall, Wigan Athletic and Sunderland have also enquired.

He could also have the option of remaining in Scotland, with Old Firm duo Celtic and Rangers both making contact with Livingston about the Australian.

TEAMtalk also understands that Dykes is a wanted man on the international stage.

The Gold Coast-born striker can play for Scotland through his parents and he is now facing a dilemma with his home country also looking to tie him down.

Dykes has held talks with both national coaches, and is weighing up his options – although he is likely to decide on his next club before committing his international future.
