Swindon Town could face a battle to retain Championship-linked Scott Twine this summer.
The youngster is currently out of contract at the end of the season and is currently expected to become a free agent.
Twine, who is 21, was on the radar in Luton Town, QPR and Brentford in January, according to reporter Alan Nixon on Twitter (see tweet below).
Luton. Passionate about Scott Twine in Swindon. The same goes for Reading Brentford QPR and Bournemouth. Swindon plans to keep him if possible.

Second-tier interest could reappear in the next few months, especially if John Sheridan’s side don’t quickly settle a new deal for him.
Swindon managed to keep him in at least January and he has since scored three goals since returning earlier this winter from his loan spell in Newport County.
Twine caught the attention of the Exiles earlier this term and played 23 games for Michael Flynn’s men, scoring seven goals and five assists.
He has worked his way up the youth ranks on the local side of Swindon and has also had loan spells at Chippenham Town and Waterford before.
Twine will play a key role for the Robins by the end of the season and they are looking to survive in League One. However, his long-term future is uncertain until they strike a contract extension with him.
Otherwise, championship clubs like Brentford, QPR or Luton can rekindle their interest and get started.
