A LEADING non league news outlet is tonight claiming that Accrington Stanley captain Peter Cavanagh is considering offers from non league football clubs after requesting to be transfer listed.

Cavanagh asked to be placed on the transfer list last week along with midfielder John Miles, although Miles has since agreed a new contract with the Reds after little interest was shown in him.

Former Liverpool man Cav has also been offered a new contract by manager John Coleman but is unsure whether to stay at the Fraser Eagle Stadium or not though after details of betting against his own team came to light.

The Football Association are still looking into the case and after being fined, Cavanagh could also find himself suspended from playing professional football, although it is highly unlikely.

And now there is news that there are up to three clubs in for the cultured right back, all from the Blue Square Conference, although non are named.

Stanley signed Cavanagh in August of 2001 following his release from the youth ranks at Premier League outfit Liverpool where he had played for 10 years as a schoolboy, trainee and professional.

An injury in 1999 threatened his career though and was resigned to playing Reserve team football on his recovery.

He is the club’s youngest ever captain and arguably one of the most successful, collecting five trophies in his first two years at the club before helping guide the club back into the Football League with some outstanding performances.
