Southampton striker Sam Gallagher is on the radar of no less than five Championship sides who will all look to tempt the 19-year-old with the chance of first team football, according to The Mirror.
Cardiff, Sheffield Wednesday, Middlesbrough and Wolves are all interested in talking Gallagher on loan though it's believed that MK Dons are leading the race for his signature.
Ronald Koeman will only allow Gallagher to leave on loan if the England youth international is guaranteed plenty of match time, which it can be assumed MK Dons have offered.

The club have also announced the loan signing of full-back Robert Hall who joins from Bolton having already spent time at Stadium:MK last season, helping the club win promotion with three goals in seven appearances.
