Cook attracting interest from Walsall and Bradford City


Tranmere striker Andy Cook is unsurprisingly attracting interest from a host of other clubs following a fantastic season with Rovers.

The big target man netted 27 goals as his partnership with James Norwood flourished and Tranmere finally left the barren waters of non-league football behind by securing a heroic Wembley win to send them back to League Two.

Cook netted Tranmere’s first at Wembley and had a hand in the build-up for the winner. After once again starting the season out of the team, the former Barrow striker forced his way back in and enjoyed a fruitful spell in front of goal.

He’s out of contract this summer and Rovers face a fight to keep hold of their talisman. League One sides Walsall and Bradford City are thought to be interested, along with former club Carlisle United. Salford have also made contact with Cook’s agent as they continue to throw money at their squad ahead of an assault on the National League next season.

Whether any of these interested clubs have gone as far as tabling contract offers, we’re not sure.

That said, we understand from sources close to the player that Cook was keen on remaining at Prenton Park and that negotiations over a new contract are on-going.

Fingers crossed that Rovers can tie Cook, and some of those other promotion-winning players, down to new contracts.

It may be a long summer.
