Speculation linking Leicester City with Kilmarnock's 22-year-old Scottish Under 21 International centre-forward Kris Boyd remains.
This after BBC Scotland revealed that they understand Kilmarnock have accepted a bid (thought to be around £400,000) from Sheffield Wednesday.
Trouble is Wednesday are third bottom of the Championship table, five points below City and, because of that, Boyd might not find their offer anywhere near as attractive to him and it is to his club.
Kilmarnock previously accepted a close-season bid for Boyd from Cardiff but that went no further and the feeling in Scotland was that Rangers-fan Boyd would sooner join his Ibrox idols.
Jim Jefferies, manager of Kilmarnock, insists however, that he has never known of any offer by Rangers.
Sheffield Wednesday do have a Scottish manager in Paul Sturrock and are showing signs of ambition but will that other Scottish manager, Craig Levein have the last say?
City certainly have a more realistic chance of achieving the unlikely and getting into a play-off position.
They even appear to have a reasonable team assembled judging by the fact that they've (jointly with Norwich) had more shots on target (181) than anyone else in the League this season.
But whether either club (if City are indeed a contender) proves attractive enough for the Scottish marksman remains to be seen.
