Brighton & Hove Albion striker Deniz Undav is being monitored by a host of Championship clubs, as detailed for the first time in an exclusive report from Soccer World League.
The report says that Burnley, Queens Park Rangers, Coventry City, Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers i City of Norwichthey are all watching the progress of the Premier League.
The 26-year-old has featured eight times in the Premier League this season for the Seagulls, but all of his appearances have come from the bench.

Asked if he foresees a Championship move coming to fruition come January, Carlton Palmer told Football League World: “He hasn’t played much. He was loaned out last season and upon his return has not been involved much this season.
Quiz: Have any of these 25 former Burnley FC players ever played for a Yorkshire team?
“So I think a loan move would be on the horizon. He’s got a lot of clubs in the Championship who are interested in him and it could even be a loan move with a view to a permanent move because he just hasn’t been involved at all at Brighton.” .
Undav needs to play regularly because he’s an exciting talent at an exciting age, and it doesn’t look too likely that regular minutes will come his way at the Amex Stadium.
The 26-year-old could thrive in the Championship, but with the level of interest he currently has, he will be hoping to go somewhere where he can play consistently.
A player with a high ceiling and undoubted ability, rediscovering form at the second level seems like a very good option considering his immediate future.
Whether a permanent switch can be agreed is also an interesting consideration in all of this, with Undav someone who could certainly impress in the Premier League in the future.
