Sunderland, Portsmouth and Ipswich Town are keeping tabs on St Johnstone forward Guy Melamed, according to Football Insider.
Melamed joined St Johnstone in October, arriving on a one-year deal until the end of the season from Israeli Premier League side Maccabi Netanya.
The 28-year-old has since impressed in Scotland, scoring five goals in 14 SPFL appearances for Callum Davidson’s side, chipping in with three assists.

But with Melamed’s contract running down, a trio of big-name League One sides are said to be monitoring the forward’s situation.
According to Football Insider, Sunderland, Portsmouth and Ipswich Town are keeping tabs on Melamed ahead of a potential summer move.
The three clubs are all in the hunt for promotion from League One, with Sunderland sitting third in the league standings.
Pompey beat Ipswich at the weekend in what was Danny Cowley’s first game in charge, with their play-off hopes increasing after the win at Fratton Park.
Melamed has done well since joining St Johnstone and has a decent record in front of goal for Davidson’s side.
You feel that whoever can offer Championship football next season will win the race for Melamed.
He’s at a decent age, he looks like he puts himself about well, and he would be a decent addition for any of these sides.
It does feel like a very Sunderland-type signing, given that they have poached the likes of Jordan Jones and Ross Stewart from Scotland this season.
