Town are reportedly showing interest in Charlton Athletic keeper Ben Amos.
According to the South London Press, Amos is under consideration by the Blues, the 31-year-old having been in talks over a new deal with the Addicks with his current contract up this summer.
Macclesfield-born Amos was a schoolboy with Crewe before moving on to Manchester United’s academy.
While with the Red Devils, Amos had spells on loan at Peterborough, Norwegian side Molde, Oldham, Hull City, Carlisle and Bolton before he joined the Trotters on a permanent basis in the summer of 2015 having made seven appearances for the Old Trafford club.
Further loan spells at Cardiff, Charlton and Millwall before he joined the Addicks on a permanent basis in 2019.
Capped by England at U16, U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 levels, Amos played just once for Charlton in 2019/20 but was ever-present in League One last season.
Amos was previously linked with the Blues as a potential replacement for Bartosz Bialkowski in 2018 and prior to that in 2012 during his time with Manchester United.
Town are on the lookout for two keepers this summer with Dai Cornell having already left the club by mutual consent and Tomas Holy among the players who has been told he can move on this summer.

The Best PM in My Life by essexccc
Being born in 1957, I think I have lived through the leadership of 12 Prime Ministers. I don't know which of them I regard as the best, although I regard the current one, the amoral, lying and self-seeking one, as without doubt, the worst.

Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
