Rangers defender Connor Goldson appears closer to the Ibrox exit door after a report named two English sides hunting his signature with a third unnamed for now.
The centre-back’s deal runs out in June and he’s been free to speak to clubs since New Year’s Day.
Neither Gio van Bronckhorst nor his predecessor Steven Gerrard have been able to get the 29-year-old to commit to a longer stay in Glasgow – and two promotion-hungry side’s in the English Championship are said to want his services next term.
The Scottish Sun claim West Bromwich Albion and Nottingham Forest – plus one other unnamed side – are in competition.
West Brom are currently in the play-off picture in fifth place while Forest are on the periphery in eight, four points away from the final slot.
Earlier in the month Van Bronckhorst landed Hearts defender John Souttar on a pre-contract deal.
He’ll join up around the same time Goldson’s contract expires, though Gers are aiming to push through a January transfer in the next eight days.
Hearts rejected an initial £300k offer, with former director of football claiming the bid will need to be doubled before Tynecastle chiefs would consider an early sale.
