Stoke City could face a battle to keep hold of forward Tyrese Campbell during the January transfer window amid interest from two Premier League clubs, according to reports.
The 20-year-old has had an impressive start to the season under Michael O’Neill, scoring six goals and providing the same number of assists in 16 Championship games so far this campaign.
Such is his form, that he was named PFA Championship fans’ player of the month back in September and October.
And that form is said to have caught the attention of clubs looking to strengthen their squads during the winter window.
Both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Burnley are reported to be keeping an eye on the Stoke man, according to Football Insider. The report claims that the duo are one of ‘many’ Premier League clubs who are showing an interest in Campbell.
However, it is also reported that Stoke are determined to hold onto their man as they see him as ‘key; to their aim of returning to the Premier League this season.
Campbell signed a new four-and-a-half-year deal at the Bet365 Stadium last January, which puts the Potters in a strong position going into the transfer window as they look to fend off interest from any club who may make an approach.

He has become a vital member of O’Neill’s team over the past year but did limp off in the second half of the midweek game against Cardiff City with a knee injury.
The extent of the problem is still unknown, but Potters fans will be hoping that it won’t keep Campbell out of action for too long.
Rangers have also been linked with a January move for Campbell, after showing their interest during the last January transfer window, when the player had just six months remaining on his deal at Stoke.
