Locals After Boyd

Football Europe understands Kris Boyd is considering offers from Aston Villa and Birmingham City.
The Rangers striker is in a strong position as his current contract expires at the end of the season and he is now free to speak to other suitors.

Rangers are keen to tie down their top goalscorer to fresh terms and have engaged in discussions with the player and his representatives.

However the Glasgow giants are currently struggling financially and the Lloyd's Banking Group need to give any contract offers their final approval before they can be signed.

Boyd's magnificent scoring record in Scotland, this season he has scored 19 goals in 17 league starts, has ensured he is not short of offers elsewhere.

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish is a known admirer having worked with the player during his time at the helm of Rangers and Scotland and there is an offer on the table from St Andrews.

We have since learned that the Blues face competition for Boyd's signature from Midlands rivals Aston Villa.

Martin O'Neill has previously said he needs to sell before he can buy but may see Boyd as an achievable target given his contractual situation.
