Scott Sellars admits he is "impressed" with Chris Greenacre backing him to succeed at a higher level and also revealed his future is in coaching.
Greenacre's 20 goals this season have played a major part in Mansfield's promotion push in Division Three this season and have made the striker one of the hottest properties in the Nationwide.
Bradford are favourites to secure his signature after Luton boss Joe Kinnear claimed he had been told by the player's representative that Greenacre had already agreed to join The Bantams.
Sellars told TEAMtalk: "I think Chris is leaving in the summer on a Bosman. I'm not sure which club he is joining but from what I've seen of him, he's impressed me.
"His goal-scoring record over the last two years has been fantastic. He's got a good first touch, he's very aware of what's going on around him and he's eager to learn and listen. He's got a lot of desire to go on to bigger and better things."
The former Blackburn, Bolton and Newcastle midfielder also believes more youngsters will eventually follow Greenacre out of the Field Mill door and join bigger clubs.
"I think Chris and four or five others at Mansfield have a chance of making good careers for themselves," Sellars added.
Sellars went onto talk about his own plans for the future after spending some time abroad saying: "It was an experience I enjoyed out in Denmark. I want to go into coaching when I do pack in playing and I wanted to see that side of it, see different ideas really, after playing for 19 years under British managers.
"I've done some of the coaching qualifications you have to do nowadays, the C-license and the B-license, so I've only got the full license left to do.
"I did some coaching with Huddersfield reserves when I was there so it's something I want to do, but I want to get my playing career out of the way really.
"Ideally, I would get a player-coach role somewhere, but they are very difficult to get, but I think it is easier to get into coaching while your actually still playing."
