Blackpool and Salford City are both keen on recently released Tranmere Rovers midfielder Ben Tollitt.

The 24-year-old is set to become a free agent this summer having announced he’s leaving Tranmere and is in-demand, as per the Blackpool Gazette.

Tollitt impressed on loan in the National League last season with Wrexham and could earn himself a move to a Football League club.

Blackpool finished 10th in League One in the past campaign and are hoping to push on into the Play-Offs next time around. They signed striker Adi Yussuff from Solihull Moors last week and could bolster their midfield options by landing Tollitt on a free transfer now.

The Tangerines will face a battle from newly promoted League Two side Salford City. Graham Alexander’s men are looking forward their debut season in the Football League and have already made an impressive coup by signing former Brighton and Hove Albion and Rotherham United midfielder Richie Towell.

Tollitt, who born in Liverpool, started out in the academy at Everton but was released in 2013 so subsequently had spells in non-league with Widnes and Skemersdale United.

Portsmouth snapped him up in 2015 and he went onto play 18 times for them before moving to Tranmere in 2016.
