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.”

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.
The Question We're All Asking: Is Relegation a Serious Possibility? by Superfrans
With a pretty horrible run of five matches coming up, I know I’m not the only fan to have serious concerns about the possibility of relegation.
Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
The Rebuild Conundrum and Inevitable Humdrum by BaltachaFanClub
Regular readers of my posts and occasional blogs will know a few things about me, firstly I am not a kneejerk reaction kind of poster, secondly I have progressed through all the stages of football fan and am now whatever is considered the final stage, where although I still love the game, I have seen it, done it and have gone all 'more important things'.
