Exclusive: Kiev's £5.5 million ($10.4 million) Boyd Move

KIEV, Ukraine -- Dynamo Kiev want Kris Boyd - and they're willing to fork out £5.5 million ($10.4 million) to get him.

Kris Boyd

An offer from the Ukrainian club, who are ready to offer Boyd £1 million ($1.9 million) a year net, is on its way to Glasgow and now everything depends on what new Rangers manager Paul Le Guen thinks about the striker, who finished top scorer in the SPL this season.

Alex McLeish paid just £400,000 ($754,000) to get Boyd when he had six months left on his contract at Kilmarnock. Now Rangers could rake in a mammoth profit on their investment.

Kiev approached agent Raymond Sparkes to begin negotiations. Sparkes began the job of selling the player to Rangers in January but he is no longer his representative.

Last night Sparkes told Record Sport: "I can confirm the identity of the club and the sums of money involved are accurate.

"But I've told Kiev I'm not in a position to know what Rangers would, or would not, accept for Kris. They can take their query to Ibrox."

Meanwhile, Austria Vienna star Libor Sionko will sign a three-year deal with Rangers on Monday.

Le Guen has been tracking the 29-year-old Czech Republic midfielder for the past month.

Sionko said: "I will travel to Glasgow on Monday."

The player is available on a Bosman after knocking back an offer to stay in Vienna for a further year.

He claims he is waiting for an unnamed European side to confirm their interest before deciding his future but a three-year deal will lure him to Ibrox.
