Alex McLeish continues pursuit of Rangers' Kris Boyd
Boyd has scored 24 goals for Rangers this season
Birmingham manager Alex McLeish is continuing to pursue Kris Boyd but admits that the Rangers striker's agents are talking to other clubs.
Boyd is out of contract in the summer but has hinted that he could stay at Ibrox if Walter Smith remains manager.
"Is signing Boyd still a possibility? Boyd is ongoing," said McLeish. "He's talking to other clubs as well. He's a free agent - he has got that luxury.
"Have we spoken to his people since January? Yes."
Boyd failed to agree personal terms with Birmingham after a fee was agreed between the clubs in January 2009 but has since re-established himself as first-choice striker under Smith.
We should be able to steal a march in terms of getting some new staff in

Speculation about Boyd's future resurfaced as the extent of Rangers' debt problems became public, with severe restrictions of their ability to bring in new players or offer new contracts.
McLeish renewed his interest in the 26-year-old this January, but Blackburn, Wigan, Hull, Middlesbrough, Hertha Berlin and Galatasaray have all been linked with the striker.
And the Blues boss, who signed Boyd for Rangers from Kilmarnock four years ago, said: "We have got a number of players we will try and pursue in the summer.
"I can talk about Boyd because he's out of contract and we have made contact with Rangers also, in terms of showing courtesy."
Boyd, who was quoted this week as saying he believes he would be a success in the Barclays Premier League, recently resurrected his Scotland career under new coach Craig Levein, having asked not to be chosen by previous boss George Burley.
He has scored 24 goals for Rangers this season and, asked if he could succeed in England's top flight, McLeish said: "You make the chances and he'll score.
"He won't turn into a bad finisher overnight once he comes to the Premier League.
"The thing about Kris is that you have to make sure the supply is right."
