Premier League duo Brentford and Bournemouth as well as Scottish giants Rangers are monitoring Blackpool hotshot Jerry Yates.

Yates' brace took him alongside Norwich's Josh Sargent, Oscar Estupinan of Hull and Blackburn's Ben Brereton Diaz at the top of the scoring charts.

And this year he has already equalled that tally in less than half the games.
Michael Appleton's decision to deploy Yates on the left wing in recent games appears to be a managerial masterstroke, with six goals in his last four games.
