Southend United defender Peter Clarke is being linked with a summer switch to League One rivals Huddersfield Town.
Charlton Athletic have also been linked with the 27-year-old, whose Roots Hall contract expires at the end of this month.
The former Everton trainee has made 150 appearances for the Shrimpers since signing from Blackpool in a £300,000 deal three years ago, but is believed to be keen on returning to the north of England.
Southend have offered him a new contract and hope to be able to persuade him to stay in Essex, but it is believed they will struggle to match the wages on offer at the Galpharm Stadium or The Valley.
