BARROW AFC have been linked with moves for a number of summer signings.

Last season is barely over, but the Bluebirds won’t be resting on their laurels as they look to build up their squad for the 2024/25 campaign.

And according to reports they are looking at a number of new faces already.

EFL Hub – an account on X (formerly Twitter) has linked the Cumbrians with a number of players in various positions.

One of the players that EFL Hub say the Bluebirds are eyeing a move for is Hull City defender Tom Nixon.

The account reported earlier this week that Barrow were in talks with the 21-year-old.

But today EFL Hub stated Doncaster Rovers, where Nixon had a spell on loan in the season just ended, Crewe Alexandra, Gillingham and Colchester United are also looking to land the defender.

Whether there is a deal to be done at all remains to be seen as the Tigers have opted to activate a one-year extension for the player.

That could mean any move away from the MKM Stadium would be on a temporary basis.

EFL hub have also credited the Cumbrians with an interest in Charlton Athletic midfielder Jason Adigun.

Adigun, who came through the Charlton ranks, had a spell on loan with Welling United last season, and it is thought he could be on his way out of the Valley this summer.

Should they decide to firm up their interest in the youngster, they could face competition for his signature from Chesterfield, who have also been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

Other names linked with the Bluebirds include Ipswich Town defender Elkan Baggott, and former Carlisle United man Omari Patrick.

It certainly looks set to be a busy summer for Barrow and not just on the first team front.

The Cumbrians released 10 players following the end of the season, and Pete Wild and the club’s recruitment team will be looking to strengthen ahead of the new campaign.

But  they are also looking at the wider picture.

Wild told The Mail recently that the club had been looking at a number of trialists before the summer break, and added that the process would be ongoing between now and the start of the new season.

Last year saw the Bluebirds field a B team for the first time, and having hailed that introduction as a success they are also looking to strengthen on that front.
