Kingston attracts EPL suitors

Kingston attracts EPL suitors Black Stars midfielder Laryea Kingston has attracted interest from three English clubs in an attempt to move from Scottish Premier League side Hearts.

The 28-year-old has impressed in the SPL since moving from Russian outfit Terek Grozny in 2007 and he has been linked with Bolton and Portsmouth.

Kingston is ready to welcome the opportunity to move to the Premier League.

His agent, Ayrat Imamov, has now stated that three English teams – and one Spanish side – are tracking the player.

“I can confirm there is a lot of interest in Larry,” Imamov, of Moscow-based Pro Sports management, told the Scotsman.

“Three English teams are watching him and one team from La Liga in Spain. These clubs are interested but I spoke to Larry and he is concentrating on this season.”

However, Imamov insists that Kingston would happily remain at Tynecastle if Hearts are not prepared to sell.

“He is a Hearts player, he is happy there, he just wants to play and help his team,” added Imamov.

“If Hearts get a concrete offer, we will sit and discuss what to do. I know that the club management are happy when Larry plays to his best level.

“If the club gets a firm offer from a top club it will be very interesting for the player.

“He has a contract with this club and we can discuss every day the possibilities for a transfer, but Larry and his family are happy in Edinburgh. He likes the championship (SPL), the style of play, he loves everything.”
