JERMAIN DEFOE has been strongly linked with a move to Rangers, with bookies slashing the odds on the 36-year-old heading to Glasgow.

First mooted for an Ibrox switch when Steven Gerrard took charge in the summer, the former England striker has also been rumoured to be a target for Celtic.

He has been told by current club Bournemouth that he would be free to leave the Premier League side in a bid for first team football.

Wages would seem to be a major stumbling block if Gerrard is looking to his former international teammate to bolster his striking options.

Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty are his current options up front, while Ryan Hardie may also be recalled from his loan at Livingston.

One deal that looks close to completion is Steven Davis’ return to Ibrox, with the Belfast Telegraph reporting that the Northern Ireland midfielder is to undergo a medical ahead of his move from Southampton.

Dedryk Boyata looks to be on his way out of Celtic as the clock runs down on his Hoops contract.

Speaking to Belgian site HLN, the defender’s agent said that a new contract was not an option and that his client could even sign a pre-contract deal with another club this month.

Meanwhile, a £10m price tag on Atalanta’s Timothy Castagne looks set to price Celtic out of a move for the defender, according to The Scottish Sun.

Bristol City are targeting Rangers left-back Lee Wallace and Hibs striker Florian Kamberi, according to The Sun.

Wallace has rarely featured under Steven Gerrard this season due to injury and Borna Barisic, Andy Halliday and Jon Flanagan appearing to be above him in the pecking order.

He could be given the chance to resurrect his career at City under Lee Johnson.

Kamberi, recently criticised by Easter Road boss Neil Lennon, is also understood to be on the Robins’ radar, as well as former Dundee United youngster Ryan Gauld, currently on loan at SC Farense from Sporting Lisbon.

Ross McCormack could be swapping Australia for Motherwell, reports The Daily Record.

The 32-year-old, currently on loan at Central Coast Mariners from Aston Villa, is said to be keen on a return to Fir Park.
