Blues Amongst Clubs Linked With Blackpool Defender
Tuesday, 19th Mar 2013 12:26
Town are one of a number of clubs reported to be eyeing Blackpool defender Kirk Broadfoot, who is out of contract at the end of the season. The Blues, who were previously linked with the 28-year-old in August, Blackburn, Leeds and Nottingham Forest are all said to be interested in the Scottish international.
Broadfoot, who is 6ft 3in tall, was a youth player at Hibernian but started his senior career with St Mirren where he made more than 150 appearances in five years before moving on to Rangers on a Bosman free transfer in the summer of 2007.
Capped four times at full level by Scotland, scoring once, in addition to appearances at U21 and B levels, Irvine-born Broadfoot made 106 starts and 12 sub appearances for Rangers, scoring once during his five years with the Glasgow club. He joined Blackpool last summer.
Broadfoot, who won three Scottish titles and a League Cup while at Ibrox, began his Seasiders career playing at right-back but more recently has been at centre-half. He has made 26 Blackpool starts, scoring two goals.
Speaking last week, he said he would be interested in agreeing new terms at Bloomfield Road: “I’ve enjoyed it here, I don’t see why things can’t be sorted out, so here’s hoping.
“Who knows what’s round the corner, we need to get safe first before we start talking about the future.”

Is it Time to Be Worried? by RyanKerry
Are you confident about the upcoming season? I'm not. How depressing is it to wake up every morning to a new Championship signing and the high amount of money spent.
Luck, Truth, Girls in Portugal by Mullet
Football is obviously a global game and these days that concept is more keenly emphasised in no other place like England, with the Premier League as vast and cosmopolitan as the Roman Empire, while the national side flounders like ball-playing barbarians.
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may know, on 1st April 2012, me and my partner Becky lost our beautiful son, Tyler. He was only 15 months old when he passed away peacefully in his sleep. Later that year, we began fundraising for a brilliant charity, The Lullaby Trust (formerly known as FSID).
Sam Allardyce – The Sensible Choice? by realprojection
My view of Sam Allardyce is heavily influenced by the most exciting match I’ve ever watched. Ipswich’s 5-3 (AET) defeat of Bolton in a play-off semi-final second leg in May 2000.
The National Conundrum by Bluetaff
No, not the referendum – although don’t get me started on that can of worms, I mean the constant disappointment of the national team at… well, the national game.
