Hull City and Barnsley are reportedly eyeing a transfer swoop for Burton Albion midfielder Scott Fraser according to The Daily Record.
Fraser is out-of-contract at the end of this year’s campaign, and it seems as though he’s heading for the exit door heading into the summer transfer window.
Fraser has been with the Brewers since 2018, when he signed form Scottish club Dundee United, and he’s gone on to make 91 appearances in total for the League One club.
He has scored nine goals and been on hand to provide his Burton team-mates with 14 assists this term as well, which makes for impressive reading for any potential suitors.
Burton Albion are currently sat 12th in the third tier standings, and it remains to be seen as to whether they will be given the opportunity to get their season back underway after recent off-the-field events.
A move to either Hull City or Barnsley could be a tempting proposition for Fraser as well, with both clubs playing their football in the Championship at the moment.
Although they’re both in a poor run of form in the second tier, and they’ll be hoping they can pick up some much-needed wins when competitive action gets back underway.
Hull had previously been challenging for a play-off spot in the Championship, but they now find themselves sat 21st in the second tier standings with nine matches remaining.
Whilst Barnsley are sat bottom of the table, and are seven points adrift, and they’ll know that results simply have to improve if they’re to avoid an immediate return to League One.

It’ll be interesting to see which club he opts to move to in the summer transfer window.
Fraser has impressed me with Burton Albion, and I’m not surprised to hear that he’s attracting interest from other clubs at this moment in time.
I’d say that a move to Hull City might be more tempting at the moment though, as they’re more likely to retain their status as a Championship club ahead of next season.
