Salford City plotting swoop for Greenock Morton midfielder Reece Lyon

Salford City are plotting a move for Greenock Morton midfielder Reece Lyon, according to a report by the Glasgow Evening Times.

Graham Alexander is eager to bolster his midfield options before the end of the transfer window and has set his sights on the highly-rated teenager.

Lyon, who is 19 years old, is being tipped for a big future after breaking into the first team of Morton in the Scottish Championship. He has made 22 appearances so far this season for the Ton and has scored four goals.

Salford have been busy this month adding to their squad as they look to climb up the table. They are currently 14th in the league, 12 points off the Play-Off places.

The Moor Lane side have managed to bring in Bruno Andrade and Michael O’Connor from Lincoln City, Tom Elliott from Millwall and Ashley Hunter from Fleetwood Town this winter but are keen on more signings.

Lyon is on their radar and Salford have watched the young midfielder in action this term. He played in the academy at St Mirren before switching to local side Morton in 2013.

He made his senior debut for the Scottish second tier side in a Challenge Cup tie against Dumbarton in August 2018 and has since established himself a key player for them. Lyon played 20 games in the last campaign as Morton finished 5th.

His side will face a battle to hold on to him now with Salford looking to pounce.
