Leahy has scored 10 goals in all competitions for Bristol Rovers and has been a shining light for them this term despite the team having a dreadful season.

The defender joined the Gas in 2019 and has been a key player for them since then.

Leahy started his career at Rugby Town before joining Falkirk in 2012 after trials at Birmingham City, Bradford City and Peterborough United.

He went on to play 158 games for the Scottish side before moving to England four years ago to sign for Walsall.

Bristol Rovers have a big summer in store and keeping him would be a shrewd move.

However, after his impressive past season Leahy could be attracting interest from elsewhere and may be thrown a League One lifeline by someone.
