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.”

Would be a useful addition if this could happen, good credentials I like him

Im not so sure about this... Think Smith/Chambo will be a good partnership next season, but we need backup

ChrisMakin2012 added 12:58 - Mar 19
Can he play on the wing?

Smith and Chambo have been great but we need some back up. All the better if he can play RB as well

I would much prefer Kevin Smallhand

If we can get Stearman at a good price, he covers RB and CB for us so i'd say we'd be looking at the lower leagues for CB cover or sign up Kisnorbo when his contract ends at Leeds in the summer?

and the end of season links with players commences... in March!!! REALLY!

I'd like to see us sign Stearman permanently as a back up for Chambers/Smith while playing right back. Broadfoot isn't the best player in the world but more than good enough to be a championship squad player.

Yeah could be good for back up but see stearman as the best player to get.
Plus Kisnorbo seems to be the back up man for the 2 centre halves.
We need a goal scorer but I do think we have them in Chopra & Mcgoldrick if they get the right service.

Would be useful addition, he's pretty happy in a more advanced R midfield role too, so is quite versatile. Solid.

I suspect MM has started to draw up a Summer short-list.

Bluelady - players who are over 24 and out of contract in the Summer can agree terms with other clubs at any time after January.
