Oldham Athletic manager Paul Dickov

Oldham Athletic manager Paul Dickov has revealed that out-of-contract duo Chris Taylor and Kieran Lee are attracting interest from Championship clubs.

Dickov wants to sort out any outstanding contract issues after Saturday's final game against Carlisle.

"Chris knows we want him to stay," Dickov told the club website.external-link "We've made him an offer but there are Championship clubs looking at him.

"It is no secret that clubs are looking at Kieran, but he enjoys it here."

As well as midfielder Taylor, the Oldham boss confirmed offers have been made to defender Lee, James Wesolowski and Reece Brown, who is currently on loan from Manchester United.

Last month, Latics chairman Simon Corney said it was "95% certain" that 25-year-old Taylor would be leaving Boundary Park at the end of the campaign.

"Nobody can begrudge him wanting to play at a higher level. If he stays in League One, I'm confident it will be with us," added Dickov.

Captain Dean Furman, meanwhile, has already committed himself to another year at Boundary Park.
