Doncaster Rovers could be set to smash their transfer record to keep Billy Sharp at the club.
Sharp is currently on loan at Rovers from Sheffield United until the end of the season and is getting plenty of attention now from other clubs with the scintillating goal scoring form he is producing.
The former Scunthorpe United hit man as scored in five games in a row and as got eight in his last nine.
He has now scored nine goals in fourteen starts since joining for the season on the last day of August.
Sheffield United cannot recall him from the loan but if another club was to come in with a satisfactory offer then they could sell him from under the noses of Doncaster.
Rovers are hoping to keep the striker till the end of the season and possibly then make an offer for the player who is enjoying his football at the Keepmoat.
Doncaster Rovers Chairman John Ryan speaking in the Doncaster Free Press said 'There's not a lot I can say on the subject really, other than, as a fan myself, I would love to see him here on a permanent basis.
'As far as I'm aware Billy has said he would like to see out his loan spell at the club until the end of the season because he's enjoying it so much and will make a decision about his future then.
'He still has another year left on his contract at Sheffield United after this season, but if he does become available in the summer, we will certainly be throwing our hat into the ring.
'All I can say is we will be doing our best.'
The 23 year olds contract runs out at Bramall lane at the end of the 2011 season and they will be wanting to recoup a large percentage of the £2 million they spent on him in 2008.
Rovers current transfer record is the £300,000 they splashed out on defender Matt Mills from Manchester City in the summer of 2008.
