Kris Boyd 300
KRIS BOYD would welcome a move to the Premier League with Everton reportedly mulling over a bid for the striker.
The Rangers hitman was linked with the Goodison Park outfit this week as rumours circled David Moyes’ men had joined the race for the 26-year-old.
Coming to the end of his contract at the Ibrox Stadium, Boyd would be available on a free transfer alerting a host of top flight English clubs.
The Daily Post understands offers have already been forthcoming however, Everton are yet to make any formal approach for the Scottish Premier League’s all time leading scorer.
And given the recent acquisition of Jermaine Beckford, Boyd would not be an automatic first choice at Goodison Park, though is known to be keen on making a move to Merseyside.
As well as reported interest from Turkish side Kayserispor, who were at one stage favourites to capture the Scotland international, Premier League sides Aston Villa and Birmingham City were thought to be interested as well as Championship outfit Middlesbrough.
The Daily Post believes Moyes has been contacted about the availability of Boyd, who has a record 164 SPL goals to him name, but has yet to indicate if Everton are likely to make a move.
Meanwhile, Nigerian captain Joseph Yobo has backed the side to overcome the disappointment of defeat to Argentina by beating Greece this afternoon in Bloemfontein.
