A report claims that Tamworth defender Ben Richards-Everton is attracting interest from the Football League.

A number of Football League clubs are reportedly monitoring Tamworth defender Ben Richards-Everton.

The 22-year-old, who is also an England C international, is widely regarded as one of the best talents outside of the Football League, with a number of teams believed to be monitoring his development.

According to Sky Sports News, the centre-back's aerial dominance and ability on the ball has alerted a number of scouts, who have become aware that his current deal will expire at the end of the season.

Richards-Everton is widely expected to leave Tamworth for a nominal fee in January.
