BRISTOL CITY could be forced to cash in on highly-rated winger Albert Adomah following their relegated from the Championship.
The Robins fought off bids for the 25 year-old during the January transfer window in the hope that he could help them stay up.
The ex-Harrow Borough and Barnet ace attracted interest from Bolton Wanderers, Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Swansea City and Middlesbrough.
The Swans and Palace had bids rejected and are expected to return for the Ghana international when the transfer window opens.
Cardiff, who have just won promotion to the Premier League, are expected to spend over £25 million this summer and Adomah is again on their wanted list.
City may have to sell if they to comply with the Salary Cost Management Protocol which operates in League One.
Rules state a wage bill cannot exceed 60 per cent of turnover or the club will face a transfer embargo.
The Robins wage bill was £18.6m in the last financial year and off loading Adomah could help ease debts of £41m.
Bolton could also be interested in signing Sam Baldock, who was a target of Dougie Freedman at Crystal Palace before joining City last summer. WEST BROM are poised to make a move for Burnley goal machine Charlie Austin.
Austin, also a target for Villa, has been watched by Baggies boss Steve Clarke. CREWE are facing a struggle to keep hold of highly-rated midfielder Luke Murphy with a number of Premier League keeping tabs on him.
Murphy, who has come up through the ranks at Gresty Road, made his debut in December 2008 and has clocked up more than 160-games.
The 23-year-old has been watched on a regular basis by scouts from top flight clubs this season.
Newcastle and Aston Villa are interested, while QPR boss Harry Redknapp has been getting reports.
Murphy scored one of his sides goals at Wembley Stadium and has got eight in 47 appearances for the League Two side.
Even Alex boss Steve Davis has even admitted that he doesn’t expect Murphy to be at the club come the start of next season.
