A number of Championship clubs have expressed an interest in signing Nantes defensive midfielder Valentin Rongier, according to reports.

The 22-year-old played an instrumental part in the French side's Ligue 1 campaign last year, making 31 appearances for the club.

According to Get West London, Rongier is on the radar of Fulham, Derby County and Birmingham City, with a bid in the region of £3m thought to be enough to secure his services.

The report goes on to claim that Rongier is keen on an opportunity to challenge for promotion to the Premier League, a goal shared by the three teams interested in the player.

Rongier, who came through the ranks at Nantes, is contracted to the club until 2020.
