Barnsley, Peterborough United, Bristol Rovers, Bury and Plymouth Argyle have all been credited with interested in AFC Fylde shot-stopper Jay Lynch.

HITC Sport has claimed that Barnsley, Peterborough United, Bristol Rovers, Bury and Plymouth Argyle are all eyeing up a move for goalkeeper Jay Lynch, who narrowly missed out on promotion to League Two with AFC Fylde this season.

Lynch is out of contract at AFC Fylde at the end of this season and a number of clubs are keen on bringing him in on the cheap this summer. The Lancashire club will have to fight tooth and nail to keep hold of Lynch this summer, after they fell at the last hurdle in their attempt to win promotion to League Two, losing to Salford City in the play-off final.

Barnsley are in the market for a new shot-stopper with Adam Davies attracting significant interest. Peterborough United are on the lookout for another man in between the sticks as well, after they transfer listed Aaron Chapman earlier this month.

Bristol Rovers, Bury and Plymouth are all also scouring the market for goalkeeping options ahead of next season.

Lynch joined Fylde at the start of the 2017/18 National League and since making his debut for the club, he has hardly missed a game. He followed up last season’s total of 40 appearances and 10 clean sheets with an impressive 48 appearances and 20 clean sheets this season, helping Fylde to two consecutive play-off finishes and himself to two consecutive spots in the National League Team of the Season.
