AFC Bournemouth defender Sam Sherring is a man in demand.

The 22-year-old is the subject of interest from no less than five clubs this summer, according to journalist Will Unwin, who often works for the Guardian.

He has reported that Cambridge United, where Sherring spent half of last season on loan, are interested in a permanent move, whilst they also face competition from Tranmere Rovers, Wrexham and Stockport County.

Sherring has apparently already rejected interest from Stevenage.

Sherring is a product of the AFC Bournemouth youth academy, having joined the Cherries at the age of 7.

He has previously enjoyed loan spells with Weymouth in the National League South, before making the step up to Torquay United in the National League where he made 45 appearances as Torquay reached the National League Play-Off Final, which Torquay lost on penalties to Hartlepool United.

Last season Sherring jumped two tiers to enjoy loan spells with Accrington Stanley and Cambridge United in League One, making a further 29 appearances in all competitions.

Obviously keen for regular first-team football, Will Unwin has reported that Sherring will leave AFC Bournemouth this summer, but where does his future lie?
