Crewe confirm Brayford interest

Crewe Alexandra could be ready to sell Derby target John Brayford to a Championship side.

The full-back, 21, joined the Alex from Burton Albion less than 12 months ago for £80,000 and was voted the club's player of the year last season.

Crewe boss Gudjon Thordason told BBC Radio Stoke: "We have had interest in John and now we are waiting to see who comes in with the bids for him.

"I have no worries about John playing at a higher level."

Meanwhile, the Alex boss has not ruled out the possibility of midfielder Michael O'Connor being part of his plans for next season.

The Icelander fell out with the Northern Ireland international towards the end of last season and allowed him to go out on loan to Lincoln City.

But Thordarson says he will be treated the same as all of his squad when they report back for pre-season training next month.
