Bristol City and Swindon Town will compete for the signature of Hereford United midfielder Aaron Birch, according to HITC.
The midfielder has attracted the attention of the Championship and League One clubs who have been thoroughly impressed with his performances.
Both clubs have sent scouts over the past few weeks to track the midfielder’s displays and have indicated that he could play at a higher level.
The Hereford player is a former West Bromwich Albion youth player – representing the Baggies for their under 21 squad, before joining Hereford last summer.
Birch has been one of Hereford’s stand out players this term by winning promotion from the Midlands Football League.
The club’s success in the league has replicated to their cup campaign after reaching the FA Cup Vase Final at Wembley Stadium next month.
Birch could be tempted with the proposition of playing professional football next season at the higher end of the football pyramid.
