Doncaster Rovers are bracing themselves for interest in Darren Ferguson this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The 46-year-old is attracting attention from Championship and League One clubs after successfully steering Doncaster Rovers to safety this season following their League Two title triumph in the last campaign.

There are various clubs in the Football League in the hunt for a new manager, including the likes of Ipswich Town and Sunderland, and Doncaster are expecting to face a battle to hold onto their boss over the coming months.

Ferguson, who is the son of former Manchester United manager Sir Alex, has been in charge of the Yorkshire side since October 2015. Despite being relegated in his first season in charge to the fourth tier, Doncaster stuck by him and he guided them back to League One at the first time of asking.

As a player, Darren Ferguson played for Manchester United, Wolves, Sparta Rotterdam and Wrexham. He started his managerial career at Peterborough United in 2007 and got them promoted to League Two in his first full season in charge.

He then got the Posh promoted to the Championship in the season after but left them in November 2009 with them bottom of the second tier. However, he returned to management with Preston North End but lasted just a year at Deepdale.

Ferguson returned to Peterborough in January 2011 and spent another four years at London Road, in which time he got them promoted to the Championship again but also could not prevent them from slipping back into League One.

He has been impressive since joining Doncaster in 2015 and could be set for a move away in the coming months.
