Huddersfield Town and Bolton Wanderers are monitoring the situation of Blackpool defender Craig Cathcart, reports the Huddersfield Daily Examiner.
The Northern Ireland international centre-back is out-of-contract this summer at Bloomfield Road but it is understood he has been offered a deal to stay with the Seasiders.
Blackpool paid Manchester United £300,000 for his services in August 2010 and he has gone on to make 117 appearances for the Bloomfield Road side, scoring three goals.
Cathcart started his career at Old Trafford at aged 16 and captained the Reds to the 2007 FA Youth Cup final.
The 25-year-old has been capped 18 times by Northern Ireland.
He represented the Green and White army from under 16 level upwards, although his only first-team appearances came in friendlies.
Town boss Mark Robins is looking for defensive reinforcements after letting both Peter Clarke and Calum Woods leave the John Smith’s Stadium.
Meanwhile Blackpool are without a manager and have only six senior players on the books so far for next season.
Former Terriers captain Clarke is said to be wanted by Preston North End and Barnsley, whilst Bradford City are linked with the versatile Woods.
