Hamilton Academical are braced to lose midfield ace Ali Crawford this summer with a host of English clubs poised to bid, TEAMtalk understands.

The Accies managed to persuade Crawford to stay with them and help battle against relegation, and he scored eight league goals as they beat the drop by just one point.

Now with 12-months left on his deal at New Douglas Park, he is set to leave the club he has spent his whole career with, making over 250 appearances for the club.

TEAMtalk can reveal that there is interest from both the Championship and League One for the 25-year-old.

Nottingham Forest are very keen, and are now managed by Mark Warburton, who tried to sign the player during his time in charge of Rangers, whilst Cardiff City and newly-promoted Sheffield United are also interested.

Wigan and Bradford City are also ready to bid, seemingly leaving Crawford with a number of options available to him.
