Bournemouth and Norwich City have been linked with a move for Cardiff City winger Craig Noone.
The 28-year-old is a fan favourite in South Wales, with many supporters bemused as to why he has started just seven Championship games this term.
A former Premier League player with the Bluebirds, the skilful wide man is now reportedly on the radar of two clubs fighting to stay in the top flight.
Both Cherries boss Eddie Howe and Canaries chief Alex Neil are looking to add more attacking threat to their squads to give them the edge in the race for survival.
However, despite offering Noone minimal opportunities in the starting XI, Slade will be keen to hold on to the ex-Brighton man with his side currently just two points off the top-six.
