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.”

Our Current Crop of Forwards by luke_38
Much has been discussed regarding the purchase of a new midfield maestro - but as well as that, we do lack strength in depth when it comes to our forwards.
Here's Where Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
In my previous effort I asked the question of Mick's plans for this season, and what they might do for Town's top flight aspirations.
Season Preview by tractordownsouth
Just like every season, we made our pre-season predictions last summer and just like every season we were wrong. Giants fell, minnows prospered and ten managers were axed, the pressure of returning their club to the financial utopia of the Premier League so great that the board of directors were ruthless and often reckless.
A Lack of Spending Will Curtail Progress by Nuggets
At a time when Fulham have just spent £11m on a striker with no Premiership experience, it's a little disconcerting to see Mick McCarthy announce that the club are relying on freebies and borrowed players once again this term.
Where Do Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
The transfer window is barely open and the club isn't so much gently sucking in the fresh air of inevitable squad change, but blowing out the cobwebs with gusts of activity.
