Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott is wanted by both Crystal Palace and Championship play-off finalists Aston Villa according to The Sun.

The 33-goal striker, who is reportedly being priced at £6.5m is reportedly attracting interest from Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday.

Portsmouth are one of the biggest clubs in League One and they could strengthen their squad ahead of a promotion push by signing Bristol Rovers legend Lee Brown.

The defender is on the verge of signing for Pompey after seven years with Rovers.

Pompey could lose top scorer Brett Pitman, however, with The Scotsman reporting that Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is targeting the 25-goal man.
