A number of Championship clubs are tracking Peterborough United’s Chris Forrester, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 24-year-old joined the Posh in 2015 from St Patrick’s Athletic and has been in impressive form this season after becoming club captain. Forrester has been ever-present and has already made a huge 29 appearances for Peterborough, including playing in every League One fixture to date. He has also chipped in with three goals, with one being a 90th minute winner in a 1-0 victory away to Northampton Town.

It now appears that the Cambridgeshire club may face a battle this month to keep hold of the midfielder. A trio of Championship clubs consisting of Brentford, Derby County and Reading are all interested in signing the former Republic of Ireland U21 international.

He first came to the attention of Championship clubs after last season’s televised FA Cup clash with West Bromwich Albion, earning praise for former England internationals Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer.

Despite being 24-years-old, Forrester is an experienced midfielder and has already accumulated over 250 career appearances and is not short of goals with 49. He has played 70 times for the League One outfit since joining a year and a half ago.

In his home country of Ireland, he won the League of Ireland with St Patrick’s and made a cool 11 appearances in European competitions. He was also called up to the senior Republic of Ireland squad last season.

Peterborough United are currently seventh in League One and could face a fight to keep their captain at London Road.
