The Kilmarnock right-back is reportedly wanted by four English clubs who will battle it out to secure his signature this summer.

O’Donnell was previously of interest to Celtic but they have since turned their attentions away from the 27-year-old.

He was one of four Killie players to be called up to Steve Clarke’s first squad as manager, sparking fears at Rugby Park that it will be hard to keep hold of the club’s best players.

Middlesbrough, Derby and Stoke are the three other clubs chasing O’Donnell, as per a report in the Daily Mail.

O’Donnell has one year left on his current contract at Kilmarnock and featured in their pre-season training session with manager Angelo Alessio in Marbella on Friday.
