Wigan Athletic, Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers are all keen on Bristol City goalkeeper Frank Fielding, according to the Bristol Post.

The experienced goalkeeper is being linked with a move back up north and has three North-West clubs showing an interest in him.

Wigan Athletic are back in the Championship next season and are in the hunt for a new goalkeeper. They can Christian Walton on loan from Brighton in the last campaign but could face a battle in trying to re-sign him. Therefore, they may opt for a move for Fielding instead.

Blackburn Rovers are keen on Fielding. The 30-year-old goalkeeper was born in Blackburn and started his career with the Rovers. A return to Ewood Park in a possibility for Fielding this summer.

Bolton Wanderers are also being credited with an interest. The Trotters have released goalkeeper Mark Howard and are in talks with their number one, Ben Alnwick. They could move for Fielding to provide more depth to their goalkeeping positions.

Fielding is an experienced Championship shot stopper and would be a decent signing. Blackburn let him go in 2011 after he never broke into the first-team there. Instead he had loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers, Northampton Town, Rochdale, Leeds United and Derby County.

The Rams signed him in 2011 and he spent two seasons with them before joining Bristol City in 2013. He could be set to move away from Ashton Gate this summer with a move back up north a possibility.
