SAINTS could snap up midfield target Steven Davis on a free transfer, if the Rangers star walks out of Ibrox this week.

The 27-year-old is one of a number of players said to be considering quitting the troubled Glasgow giants.

Steven Naismith and Steven Whittaker have already lodged objections to their contracts being transferred to the ‘newco’ Rangers, after the former company was consigned to liquidation.

Naismith and Whittaker, who have been joined by teammates Sone Aluko and Rhys McCabe, now claim they are free agents.

And Davis, who Saints are keen to bring to St Mary’s this summer, could be about to join the exodus.

The Northern Ireland international has a release clause of about £1.6m in his contract.

That was inserted when he accepted a 75 per cent wage cut following the club’s descent into administration, in order to help prevent job losses at the club.

But the Rangers skipper is now said to be seriously considering following Naismith and Whittaker out of the door.
