York City are reportedly leading the race for highly-rated Lincoln City left-back Sean Newton.

The 25-year-old is understood to be attracting interest from a host of other clubs, including Notts County, Oldham Athletic, Shrewsbury Town and Scunthorpe United.

Born in Liverpool, Newton began his career with Chester and has also had spells with Southport (loan), Droylesden, Barrow, AFC Telford United and Stockport County, while simultaneously earning a couple of England 'C' caps.

He scored both goals for Droylesden in an FA Cup second round replay victory over Chesterfield back in December 2008 when actually being ineligible due to suspension. His club were subsequently thrown out of the competition that season.

Newton later joined Stockport and became captain at Edgeley Park until moving to Lincoln on a two-year contract last summer. Noted for his ability from set-pieces, he has already appeared 27 times for the Conference Premier side this season.
