Rangers hitman Kris Boyd has held talks with Turkish outfit Kayserispor over a possible move, according to manager Shota Arveladze.[LNB] Arveladze - a former Gers striker - hopes his personal phone calls will persuade the prolific Scotsman to make the move across the continent to join his side.[LNB]Boyd is out of contract this summer and the likes of Birmingham, Newcastle, Blackburn, Wolves, Ankaragucu and Bursaspor are all believed to be keen on securing the 26-year-old's services.[LNB]But Kayserispor appear to be ahead of their rivals in the chase for his signature, with Arveladze planning to meet the SPL's all-time record goalscorer face-to-face.[LNB]The Georgian told the Sunday Mail: "I have had conversations with Kris and we will talk some more.[LNB]"I'm hopeful he will decide to come here but I know he has other options.[LNB]"I really want him to join me. I've made this a priority and hope the personal touch I've added to the move will work in my favour.[LNB]"Some coaches prefer to let the club president do the talking but I think the coach should always speak to the player and outline plans."
