Birmingham City and Preston North End transfer target Louis Moult could be set to attract further competition for his signature after firing Motherwell to the final of the Betfred Cup.

The 25-year-old Stoke-on-Trent born hotshot is getting rave reviews with The Steelmen and his price tag could have now increased after his double helped Motherwell defeat Rangers at Hampden Park on Sunday to set up a historic final meeting with Glasgow giants Celtic.

The72 reported last week that both Birmingham City and Preston North End are considering moves for the striker  but a stellar performance at Scotland’s national stadium could now see many other clubs begin to take notice of Moult’s talents.

The player started his career at Stoke City but made just three senior appearances for The Potters. Moult was regularly loaned out during his time with the English Premier League club and played non-league football with the likes of Mansfield Town, Alfreton Town and Nuneaton Town before joining the latter on a permanent basis in summer 2013.

A spell at Wrexham followed and after scoring 22 goals in 49 matches for The Dragons, Moult joined Motherwell for an undisclosed fee in summer 2015.

Moult has netted 18 goals in each of his two seasons with the unfashionable Scottish Premiership club and the player is on track to beat those tallies this term with 11 goals already to his name.
