Oldham Athletic defender James Tarkowski is the subject of speculation linking the 21-year-old with a January move to Huddersfield or Burnley.

Liverpool are also said to have taken an interest in the £2 million rated central defender.

Oldham manager Lee Johnson commented:-

“I know there were a lot of people looking at Tarkowski. From my point of view, I am pleased as I want to keep him. Hopefully, he won`t be going anywhere. But we have got a lot of interest with people talking about a lot of our players. It wouldn`t surprise me if there were bids for one of four or five. But until you get asked the question seriously by a manager or chief executive, it doesn`t matter.”

Tarkowski is contracted with the Latics until the summer of 2015 and if the price tag is correct I think we can probably rule ourselves out of this one.
