Middlesbrough, Stoke and Derby in for Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson

Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson is attracting loan interest.

Sky Sports says Middlesbrough, Stoke and Derby are waiting to find out whether Simpson can leave Dean Court on loan.

The Cherries are expected to make a decision on whether to let the centre-back go later this week, and the three Championship clubs are all keen to take him.

Simpson, 23, has made only six appearances for the Cherries this season; three in the Premier League, two in EFL Cup and one in the FA Cup.

Boro are in the market for a centre-back and have also inquired about a loan return for Ben Gibson from Burnley - but Jonathan Woodgate's side were knocked back.

Stoke and Derby are also looking to bolster their defences as they look to avoid relegation.
