Hull City, Huddersfield Town and Lincoln City are all said to be interested in signing Stockport County defender Macauley Southam-Hales, with Football Insider reporting that the trio are monitoring the 25-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Cardiff born wing back has been in sparkling form for the National League side this term and has been a regular on the right hand side of defence for the Hatters.
Blessed with searing pace and brilliant attacking ability, Southam-Hales has all the attributes expected of a modern full back and would undoubtedly be an exciting addition for one of the three aforementioned clubs.
And the Welshman also boasts previous experience of playing in the Football League, having taken in a spell with the Fleetwood Town in more recent times before moving to Edgeley Park last summer.

The defender currently has one year remaining on his contract with the non league side.
This would be an interesting move from the Tigers as it would show that they are willing to take a gamble on a player who has played the vast majority of his career at non league level.
However as has been proven in the past, there are plenty of gems in that league and below that are waiting to be uncovered and Hull may have just found the latest one.
The defender would add some much needed pace to their backline and would also provide a good level of competition for Josh Emmanuel in the right back slot.
Swooping in on players at National League level at this point in time is a wise move, as the current tough financial circumstances of teams in that league are there for all to see and they would welcome the windfall they would receive from selling some of their more talented players this summer in order to balance the books.
