Goodison Park boss keen on Scottish international.
Everton show interest in Kris Boyd
Forward Kris Boyd’s supposed move to Major League Soccer could be off after Everton boss David Moyes registered an interest in his fellow Scot.
Boyd is a free agent following a turbulent couple of years in his career which has seen him struggle during a high-profile spell at Championship side Middlesbrough, go on a brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest and play for the Turkish club Eskisehirspor – who he left in December having played just two games, citing that he hadn’t been paid in six months.
28 year old Boyd may well be a cost effective way of boosting Everton’s attacking options but one must wonder at just how match ready the Scottish international is. The former Rangers man played just 76 minutes of top level football during his nightmare period in Turkey with Eskisehirspor.
Of course at Rangers the former Motherwell man was unstoppable, 127 goals in 151 starts. Moyes will be hoping he can show a return to that sort of form if he does indeed bring the striker to Goodison Park.
