A host of Championship clubs are keen on signing winger David Cotterill on a free transfer this summer, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The 30-year-old is attracting attention from the likes of Swansea City, Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers as well as League One side Sunderland.

Cotterill has most recently played for Indian side ATK but only played 3 times for them and is now eager to return to England. He is not short of options and will now be weighing up which move would suit him the best.

He is an experienced winger in the Football League and has played for teams such as Bristol City, Wigan Athletic, Sheffield United, Swansea City, Portsmouth, Barnsley, Doncaster Rovers and Birmingham City in a well-travelled career. Cotterill has also made 24 caps for Wales and went to Euro 2016 with his country.

Swansea City are believed to be interested in bringing him back to the Liberty Stadium. Their new boss, Graham Potter, could see Cotterill as a shrewd acquisition on a free transfer to bolster his midfield options.

The Swans will face competition from Blackburn Rovers who are looking to bring in some reinforcements this summer to prepare for their Championship campaign after they were promoted from League One last season under Tony Mowbray.

Bolton Wanderers have also been credited with an interest. They have already signed Jason Lowe and Erhun Oztumer on free transfers so far in this transfer window and could make it three in a row with David Cotterill.
