Mansfield Town are keen to keep hold of striker Danny Rose this summer.

The 25-year-old is attracting interest from the likes of Tranmere Rovers, Bradford City and Salford City, as per a report by the Mansfield Chad.

Rose, who is from Barnsley, scored five goals in all competitions for the Stags last season, having scored 17 in the campaign prior.

Newly-promoted League One side Tranmere are in the hunt for some new signings, as reported by The72 earlier today, and could move for Rose.

Mansfield’s League Two rivals Bradford and Salford have also both been credited with an interest with Rose’s experience of the fourth tier obviously appealing to clubs.

The Stags will need to bat away interest in their forward this summer and their new boss, John Dempster has said, as per the Mansfield Chad: “I have had verbal conversations with agents and managers about Danny – there is interest in him”

“The interest at this moment in time is only verbal, so it’s very early stages. I would be happy to see Danny stay at the football club as I think he’s got various strengths that would be key to our success going forward.”

“He is a bit of an all-rounder in terms of he can run in behind, he can hold the ball up, he wins free kicks high up the pitch – which is key at League Two level for set plays – and he is a grafter.”

The former Barnsley and Bury striker has a year left on his contract at Field Mill.
