Cardiff and Hearts eye up Quinn

Cardiff City and Hearts are hopeful of signing Motherwell's Paul Quinn, while fellow defender Mark Reynolds is also attracting interest from English clubs.

Both clubs have made offers for the 23-year-old Quinn but have yet to meet the Fir Park outfit's valuation.

However, it is believed that the two suitors are not far away from agreeing a fee for the right-back.

Reynolds is also on the radar of clubs in the English Championship, although no firm offer has been made.

Unlike Quinn, the 22-year-old has two years left on his contract and previous suitors Rangers have not renewed their interest in the current economic climate.

Motherwell appear willing to sell their prize assets despite being a matter of days away from facing Llanelli in their opening Europa League qualifying tie.

The Scottish Premier League club are also without a manager after Mark McGhee's departure to Aberdeen.

Lawrie Sanchez, Steve Staunton, Jim Gannon and Aidy Boothroyd are on a four-man shortlist.

And Motherwell hope to announce their new boss early next week before Thursday's opening fixture of the season in Wales.

It is the economic downturn and the loss of television broadcasting funds following the collapse of Setanta that has led Motherwell to consider selling their top players.
