Bayern Munich eye up Tranmere Rovers' Jennings

Tranmere forward Dale Jennings is attracting interest from German giants Bayern Munich.

The 18-year-old has scored six goals in 32 appearances for the League One club this season.

Manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside: "There has been interest in Dale Jennings from Bayern Munich."

In February, Parry said that Rovers had already rejected a number of offers for Jennings, including one from a Premier League club.

Parry also confirmed that a number of Championship clubs are interested in defender Aaron Cresswell.

The 21-year-old is out of contract in the summer, but has been offered a new deal at Prenton Park.

"It's no secret that there are Championship clubs interested in him," said Parry.

"We can't stand in the way of people who are attracting that sort of attention. But if he goes, he goes with my blessing.

"He's done terrifically well for us and he's been one of the best full-backs in the division."

Former Rovers physio Parry signed a new one-year deal with the club on Monday after successfully preventing them from being relegated to League Two.

He confirmed that his objective for next season will be to once again stave off relegation, while working under the same tight financial constraints.

"It's an identical budget and I knew that when I accepted the contract, so that's not a problem," said the 53-year-old. "We'll get on with it and deal with it.

"The good thing about the budget is that other clubs have seen what we've been able to do and they're realising they're living above their means and are accumulating huge debts.

"Most clubs in our division will be severely cutting their budgets. Probably not to the level that ours is, but they're coming that way."
