Amid widespread interest from the Championship, Doncaster Rovers striker John Marquis insists that he will be remaining at the club next season, according to Leon Wobschall of the Yorkshire Post.

Free scoring John Marquis has reportedly been subject to interest from five current Championship clubs, as well as Championship-bound Sheffield United.

As well as Doncaster’s Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United, Marquis is attracting attention from the East Anglian duo of Ipswich Town and Norwich City.

The former Millwall striker is also apparently on the radar of Blackburn Rovers, Barnsley and Bristol City.

Marquis has hit a staggering 26 goals this season, placing him as one of the top scorers in the whole of England, as well as sitting comfortably at the top of the League Two goal scoring charts.

The 24-year-old’s goals have led Doncaster to promotion and he insists that he has become a much better player thanks to this club so he owes it to them to stay for their League One campaign next year.

Marquis said:

“As far as I am concerned, I have a year left on my contract and hopefully if I can well enough in the next few games, they might want to sit down and sort a new one out, which would be nice.

“There is no reason I would be wanting to go anywhere else.

“My football has come on so much and I cannot speak highly enough of the manager and staff.

“I would probably go as far as to say that I have learned more in one year of football since Kenny Jackett left Millwall, which was maybe four years ago.

“My tactical knowledge of the game has improved as has my technique.

“It has been incredible how I have improved personally.”
