Bristol Rovers are willing to sell striker Jonson Clarke-Harris for the right price, amid links earlier this year that Hull City were interested in signing him.

The club’s CEO Martyn Starnes has admitted that the 25-year-old could be sold when the transfer window opens next month, with Bristol Live also stating that City are one of four Championship clubs reportedly interested in a move for the Gas’ top scorer this season, alongside Sheffield Wednesday, Middlesbrough and Reading.

The report states that the Tigers made a casual enquiry for Clarke-Harris in the summer, but were not willing to pay more than £450,000 for his services, which Rovers see as a fee far below their valuation of the striker.

"Every player has a value so if an offer came in for Jonson Clarke-Harris or anybody else in the club we would have to consider what's in the best interest of the club," Starnes told the media after Graham Coughlan departed as the club’s manager this week.

"Would it be in the best interest of the club to sell the player, is it in the best interest to retain the player? That's part of the football business. We have that challenge every transfer window."

In what has been an injury hit season for Clarke-Harris, his eight goals in League One have come in just 11 appearances this season, playing in just one of manager less Rovers’ last eight matches.
