Middlesbrough, Newcastle United and Leeds United are among the clubs interested in Coventry City midfielder Tom Bayliss, according to reports.

The Sunday People claim that the trio are all eyeing a potential swoop for the 20-year-old after his impressive performances in League One this term.

Bayliss, a product of the Sky Blues' youth academy, has recently penned a new four-year deal at the Ricoh Arena - but that doesn't seem to be deterring potential suitors.

Brighton & Hove Albion are also claimed to be keen on a swoop for the all-action midfielder, who is believed to be valued at around the £500,000 mark.

While Coventry may have missed out on the play-offs this season, Bayliss has enjoyed another fine campaign - netting three times while featuring regularly.
