SOUTHEND United defender Ben Coker is attracting interest from Lincoln City, Echosport understands.

Coker, who has been with the Shrimpers since 2013, is out of contract at Roots Hall this summer and is believed to be on the wanted list of former Concord boss Danny Cowley.

The left-back has made 208 appearances for Blues but has been out of action October after suffering a cruciate ligament injury at Sunderland.
