Inverness Caley boss Dodds knows big interest arriving for Norwich loanee McAleer

Inverness Caley boss Billy Dodds is aware of growing interest in Norwich City loanee Reece McAlear.

The midfielder is out of contract with the Canaries this summer and, as we reported earlier this week, is attracting interest from clubs in both Scotland and England after his performances this season.

"The boys let me know in training (about the speculation) and were giving Reece a bit of stick," Dodds told the Post and Journal.

“It doesn't surprise me, because he is a good player and he has been a revelation since he came into the team.

“That's why I said I can't believe he is not in the Scotland under-21 squad. I stand by it.

“This is a boy who has been playing first-team football and really grasped the opportunity. He should walk into that under-21s team.

“He's been scoring goals and putting in consistent performances. I have been blown away by him – he is a really good player. Hopefully, he will continue until the end of the season and perhaps even beyond."

Dodds refused to be drawn over whether Inverness would be adding their name to the list of suitors for the Norwich midfielder, stating only that they would be respectful to his parent club.

“We have to realise he is a Norwich player and we will deal with that when the time comes."
