Norwich City’s Ben Godfrey has been linked with summer moves away from Carrow Road after impressive last season.
According to reports, he is valued around the £3m mark.
York inserted a sell-on clause when they sold the 20-year-old to Norwich in 2016 - so they could win big should he seal a move.
Premier League Crystal Palace have been rumoured with the defender heavily linked with manager Roy Hodgson a fan of the ex-Minsterman.
Also said to be interested are two clubs new to the Championship, West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City.
Everyone at York will be keeping a close interest on things and a six-figure sum is almost certain to come their way if a deal is agreed.
Manager Martin Gray hope to have the club battling for promotion this season after missing out on the National League North play-offs last year.
