According to the Daily Mail, Blackburn, Bristol City, Portsmouth and Ipswich have made enquiries regarding Australian international midfielder Brandon O’Neill.

The 25-year-old, who has a UK passport, plays as a holding midfielder, would cost £350,000. The fact that O’Neill’s club Sydney would require a fee almost certainly puts the Blues out of the running.

Town were also reported to be interested in holding midfielder Alejandro Rodriguez Gorrin, who is available on a free transfer after leaving Motherwell, but it’s understood interest in the Spaniard has gone no further than an enquiry.

With Cole Skuse and Flynn Downes both more than capable of playing in the defensive midfield area, it is unlikely Lambert will be investing in that area as other areas are deemed more important to strengthen.
