Russell Penn is attracting interest from League One and League Two clubs following his exploits at Kidderminster Harriers.
The 37-year-old former Wrexham midfielder guided Kidderminster to promotion from the National League North on Sunday with a play off win over Brackley Town.
It was their ninth win in a row and marked an incredible turnaround for a club that was in the bottom half of the division and seven points adrift of the play-offs at the start of last month.
The victory meant a return to the National League Premier for the first time since 2016 for the Harriers and redemption for Penn who came under fire following a dip in form in December.
Last year his team reached the Fourth Round of the FA Cup and the play-offs in his first full season in charge, which has already alerted Football League clubs to his potential.

Penn said: ‘I wasn’t promoted as a player, I didn’t win anything as a player. What we’ve done in the last two years is crazy.’
He is due to speak to the club’s hierarchy this week about players and the budget.
‘I have some really tough decisions to make next week. Football is relentless,’ Penn said.
‘But there are some golden personalities in that dressing room who have really come to the fore in the last few months and we have to savor it.’
