Shrewsbury Town are considering making a move for AFC Telford striker Danial Udoh.
The Shropshire Star is reporting they understand Udoh is on the radar of the Shrews manager Sam Ricketts after a prolific debut season for the Bucks in which he netted twenty-six times in forty-six appearances across all competitions.
The twenty-two-year old’s all-around game and eye for goal have impressed the Shrewsbury boss but it is likely he may have competition for the Nigerian born hotshot from several other EFL clubs.
The National League North outfit do harbour hopes of keeping Udoh with manager Gavin Cowan recently commenting that he felt another season at Telford would benefit the player’s development but are no doubt bracing themselves for substantial interest in their prize asset from higher up the football pyramid in the summer.
Udoh does have league experience having played fifteen times for Crewe where he came through their academy. While at Gresty Road he had loan spells at Leamington, Chester and Solihull Moors before arriving at Telford following his release last year.
Definitely worth a punt for Ricketts as he looks to add firepower to his squad.
A ratio of one goal in two is impressive at any level
Non-league is full of gems and Udoh’s record last season means he deserves a chance to prove himself at a higher level.
It is understood the striker lives in Shrewsbury, and this could be the determining factor in Udoh choosing the Shrews over other EFL clubs who will have been alerted by his tremendous season.
