League One and League Two clubs tracking National League hotshot
According to a report from HITC Sport, a number of clubs from both League One and League Two are set to attend Halifax Town’s game against Harrogate Town to watch forward Liam McAlinden, who has enjoyed a successful start to the new season.
It has been reported that attacker Liam McAlinden – who plays for National League side Halifax Town – is attracting interest from a host of clubs in League One and League Two.
McAlinden only joined Halifax earlier this summer after his departure from League Two side Cheltenham Town but having enjoyed a thoroughly successful start to life with the club, a number of teams are taking an interest in the 25-year-old.
Playing either out on the right or through the middle for Pete Wild’s side, McAlinden has scored six goals in 11 games and helped Halifax Town into 2nd place in the National League table.
Given that McAlinden only put pen to paper on a short term deal in the summer transfer window, the Irish forward could be available on a free transfer in the January transfer window and multiple Football League clubs are said to be interested in potentially swooping in for him.
After coming through the youth academy with Wolves, McAlinden spent time out on loan with the likes of Shrewsbury Town (twice), Fleetwood Town (twice) and Crawley Town. In 2016, he joined Exeter City on a free transfer and spent two years with the Grecians, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists before heading for Cheltenham.
He only played eight times for Cheltenham and spent most of his time out on loan with non-league sides before joining Halifax Town.
