Cheltenham Town captain Carl Winchester is attracting interest from Oxford United, Lincoln City and Forest Green Rovers, according to Gloucestershire Live.

Carl Winchester nicknamed “Winiesta”  has been one of the Cheltenham’s key players this season, making  44 appearances in the club’s 45 League Two matches this season and scoring five goals.

Winchester is a nimble and fleet-footed midfielder with a good eye for a pass.

He was brought in during the January transfer window of 2017, from Oldham, as Johnson looked to strengthen his squad in the fight against relegation.

In January, Cheltenham boss Gary Johnson expressed his desired to build a side around Carl Winchester, following his impressive impact at the club.

Johnson said “Winny is the the one you can put in different positions and he’s worth three players for us”

“That’s been been obvious for the whole season and we’ll keep building a squad around him.”

With the midfielder’s contract expiring at the club in the summer, this could be a perfect time for a team to swoop in for him but Gary Johnson has offered him a new contract.

It is believed that Forest Green Rovers have a serious interest Cheltenham Town’s out of contract captain Carl Winchester.

But sadly for Forest Green Rovers and Cheltenham, the 25-year-old midfielder is attracting interest from League One clubs, including Oxford United as Karl Robinson looks to build his own squad at the club.

While League Two play-off hopefuls and Checkatrade Trophy champions Lincoln City are also ready to swoop as Danny Cowley has admitted to having an interest in Winchester.
