Ross County right-back Jason Naismith is a target for five Football League clubs, according to the Daily Record.

Plymouth Argyle and Burton Albion are believed to be amongst the three League One clubs interested in Naismith. Two Championship clubs are interested as well whilst Aberdeen are also keen on him.

Naismith has two years left on his contract at Ross County but they will face a battle to hold onto him this summer.

Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams is a big fan of Naismith and is looking to use his contacts in Scotland to bring him to Home Park. His Pilgrims side narrowly missed out on the League One Play-Offs last season.

Burton Albion are another side being credited with an interest. They will be playing in the third tier next season following their relegation from the Championship. Their manager, Nigel Clough, is looking to build a side capable of promotion and could try and sign Naismith.

Naismith, who is 23- years-old, joined Ross County in January 2017 and has been a key player for them since. He started his career at St Mirren and had loan spells at Cowdenbeath and Greenock Morton before breaking into their first-team.

He played 106 games for St Mirren before leaving them for Ross County for an undisclosed fee. Naismith has also represented Scotland at U17, U18, U20 and U21 level in the past and is being tipped for a senior call-up in the near future.
