Smith has a year left on his existing contract and has been offered an extension by the club in the hope to command a considerable fee.

The Northern Irishman was named in the PFA’s League Two team of the year and the Bristol Post understands he is settled in Bristol and is reluctant to up sticks, but if is he to fill his ambitions of representing his country, it will be inevitable he will have to move away from Bristol Rovers.

Smith was signed in 2011 from Ballymena United and has gone on to make 84 appearances including a further 17 from the bench.

Rovers boss Darrell Clarke is expected to hold talks with Smith as well as Lee Brown and Alefe Santos to try keep the trio at the club.

Clarke has a rebuilding process on his hands and is it understood he wants to add at least ten new players to his squad.

As well as Smith, John-Joe O’Toole and Tom Lockyer are also to be said to be monitored by a number of Football League clubs.
