Lewis Travis has a host of League One sides chasing his signature ahead of the January window.

Travis, who was close to moves to Bradford City and League Two side Oldham Athletic in the summer, is keen to further his development with a loan move next month.

Rovers are likely to sanction that, so long as they don’t have a shortage of options, with the 21-year-old having been around the first team squad for much of the season.

And his possible availability has led to interest from the likes of Portsmouth, Blackpool, Wycombe Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle, while Fleetwood Town could also look to make a move.

Travis, who signed a new long-term deal at the club earlier this year, has played eight times for the first team, most recently in the win over Sheffield Wednesday.

He has developed in to a central midfield prospect, but can also operate at right back.

As well as his eight outings, he has also been an unused substitute on five occasions.

Speaking earlier this month, boss Tony Mowbray said: “The plan would be to go and play 20 games until the end of the season.

“Our squad will dictate that, how many players we have available, and if we have enough options we will probably let them go out on loan so they can go and play games and come back, have a good pre-season and see if they can get in our team.  

“Travis is a versatile player but it’s just whether we think he can get in the team ahead of Smallwood, Evans, Reed, Bennett.”
