A report in TEAMtalk in June claimed that Old Firm duo Celtic and Rangers had held talks with Clare, who is a free agent following his departure from Wednesday in the Championship in England this summer.
The report also credited Leeds United, Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham with interest in the 21-year-old midfielder.
However, with Clare still a free agent, it seems that Heart of Midlothian are taking an interest in the Englishman.
The report, though, has stated that Clare is still considering his options, and perhaps this could still give Celtic and Rangers some hope.
While Hearts may be keen on the 21-year-old as well, as reported by Capital City Press, if Clare has still not decided on his future, then both Rangers and Celtic may still have a chance.
