Wanderers are reported to be in a three-way battle in a bid to bring in Bristol City goalkeeper Frank Fielding.

Blackburn-born Fielding is said to be mulling over a move back to his native North West after five years at Ashton Gate, though Phil Parkinson would face stiff competition from fellow Championship sides Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers.

The 30-year-old came through the youth system at his home-town club, and Rovers could be considered favourites to land Fielding should he leave the Robins, who have already been running the rule over a number of possible signings after Lee Johnson released back-up Luke Steele this summer.

The City manager is thought to be eyeing a move for Manchester United prospect Dean Henderson, who helped Shrewsbury reach Sunday’s League One play-off final.

Wigan, promoted as champions alongside Blackburn, are seeking a goalkeeper, particularly if manager Paul Cook is unable or unwilling to bring back Brighton loan man Christian Walton, who played 35 games for them last season. However, Fielding is believed to be close to two former Bristol City players now at the Macron, Mark Little and the club’s last-gasp hero Aaron Wilbraham, which could sway any decision, should he exit his present club in favour of a return to the north.

And the Whites are likely to be in the market for a keeper, as Mark Howard – who spent most of last season as deputy to Ben Alnwick – was told last week he is free look for another club.

Parkinson does have other options, with Ben Amos still under contract with the club, despite spending last season on loan at Charlton and academy product Jake Turner progressing well.

But with Amos likely to be farmed out again next term and Turner – clearly talented but short on first-team experience – Parkinson may turn to Fielding, who has plenty of experience in the second-tier, to provide competition for Alnwick.

If Anderson has scared off potential investors, the entire outfield is our concern. Still suspect we'll be getting a statement along the lines of "we tried to do a deal but their demands were too much" aka didn't meet our valuation, but no news is good news and you never know, however if we're going to get investors it needs to be sooner rather than later so targets can be revised in time to have any chance of getting them.
