Indian side ATK have joined the race to snap up former Celtic and Hibs star Anthony Stokes, according to reports.

Last week Lowland League side East Kilbride opened the door for shock swoop for the striker with gaffer Stevie Aitken stating "if we could make a pitch and a deal could be done, we would do it."

Kilby have been on a huge recruitment-drive in the fifth tier of Scottish football bringing in the likes of  Chris Erskine, Paul Paton and Kyle Hutton so far this summer.

However, the 32-year-old could now be tempted with a switch to the Kolkata having been without a club after leaving Irainian outfit Persepolis earlier this year.

He has spent the past two years playing for clubs in Iran, Turkey and Greece and last played in Scotland in 2018 ending a third stint at the Hibees.
