Kris Boyd set for MLS switch

MLS side Portland Timbers is set to complete the capture of Scottish striker Kris Boyd, the club have revealed on their official website.

The 28-year-old has been out of contract since leaving Turkish side Eskisehirspor in December.

The former Rangers striker had numerous offers from Europe, but he ultimately decided to accept an offer from Portland.

The Scottish striker will be officially presented at Portland subject to passing a medical and receiving a work permit.

“I’ve said from the beginning, that we are committed to winning and will the make a significant investment on the player front if it is the right fit for the organization,” Portland Timbers President Merritt Paulson told club’s official website.

“Kris perfectly fits the profile of the team’s needs and will make a huge impact.”

Boyd started his career at Kilmarnock and enjoyed a lot of success with the Killie before joining Rangers in 2006.

The striker scored more than 100 league goals at Ibrox Park before deciding to leave Scotland for England, but he never managed to fulfill his potential at Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest.

He was expected to return to Rangers after the unsuccessful spell in Turkey, but he instead opted for Portland.

Boyd featured 16 times for Scotland national team and managed to score 7 goals in the process.
