West Brom confirm Rangers talks over Naismith deal

West Bromwich Albion have opened talks with Rangers for Steven Naismith.

Albion's sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth has made initial contact with Rangers to try to lay the groundwork for a deal.

"I know that Dan and I have talked about it," said Baggies boss Roy Hodgson.

"Dan has been in contact with Rangers, but to what extent a bid has been made, I don't know, or what bid has been made I don't know.

"But, yes, Steven Naismith is a player who, when he accepted to reduce his wages, it was fairly obvious he is a player who Rangers might not be able to keep and as a result we are entitled to make an inquiry.

"Whether a bid has been made or turned down, I don't know, but I know Dan has asked about him."
