Barrow AFC are among a number of League Two clubs eyeing Altrincham defender Kyle Ferguson, according to reports.

The Bluebirds' ongoing managerial hunt has not stopped them being linked with the 22-year-old.

The Sun claim that Ferguson, son of Rangers and Scotland legend Barry, is on the Bluebirds' radar.

They report that Northampton Town and Salford City are also keeping tabs on the big centre-half.

Ferguson has impressed since joining Altrincham in February, the defender making nine appearances for the National League club towards the end of the season.

The defender was on Rangers' youth books, as well as those of Kilmarnock, Airdrie and Clyde, before spending time in America on a scholarship, and then in Swedish football.

He joined Waterford in February last year and caught the eye with his displays for the League of Ireland club.

Ferguson held an ambition of playing in England and after training with Torquay United, made the move to Altrincham.

Barrow are yet to make any moves in the transfer market at a time they are yet to confirm their new manager.

The Bluebirds have not commented on the situation since their recent update which said they had approached a club for permission to speak to their main target.

Names strongly linked with the post so far have been FC Halifax Town boss Pete Wild and Bolton Wanderers' coach and former Bluebirds man Sam Hird.

Halifax's season was ended on Tuesday night as they lost 2-1 to Chesterfield in the National League eliminator.

Bolton, in the wake of Barrow's statement, told the Bolton News that they had received no contact from the Dunes Hotel Stadium club regarding Hird.
