The 72

Portsmouth and Coventry City are interested in Tranmere Rovers’ Connor Jennings.

The 27-year-old is a man in-demand this summer, as per a report by Football Insider.

It is also believed that Scottish Premiership side Hibernian are also keen on him.

Jennings scored the goal to get Tranmere promoted last weekend in the League Two Play-Off final at Wembley against Newport County.

The Manchester-born man was a key player for Micky Mellon’s side last season in the fourth tier and scored 13 goals in all competitions. He still has a year left on his contract at Prenton Park so the Whites are under no pressure to sell.

Jennings, who can play up front and in midfield, started his career at Stalybridge Celtic and went onto make 123 appearances for them as a youngster, scoring 51 times in the National League North.

He earned a move to the Football League in 2012 when Scunthorpe United snapped him up. However, he struggled to make an impact with the Iron and was loaned out to Stockport County, Macclesfield Town and Grimsby Town. Jennings bagged 17 goals in 19 games for Macc.

Wrexham signed him in 2014 and he made 102 for the Welsh, bagging 23 goals before moving to Tranmere in 2016.

Jennings has been a key player for Rovers ever since, having helped them gain back-to-back promotions from the fifth tier to League One.
