POOL are being linked with a Rangers wonderkid labelled one of the game’s rising stars.

The Seasiders are understood to have made an enquiry about attacking midfielder John Fleck, who made his first-team debut for the Glasgow giants at the age of 15, four years ago.

Fleck has made 37 appearances since. He is a big part of Rangers’ long-term plans and signed a new three-year contract last year.

But Pool are hoping to land the teenager on a loan deal and have made contact with Ibrox.

Ian Holloway wants to add players with an eye for goal before the transfer window closes at the end of the month, especially with DJ Campbell on the verge of finally leaving.

The striker is close to completing a move to QPR, though there has been a hold-up as he waits to see if Aston Villa come in with a late bid. Campbell has not been training with Pool.
