Birmingham defender Stephen Carr is out of contract at St Andrews and Sky Sports believe that both Wolves and Burnley are monitoring the 35-year-old.
The Republic of Ireland international right back started his professional career with Tottenham. He was then transferred to Newcastle United in August 2004 when then manager Bobby Robson signed him for a fee of £2 million.
After four years at St James Park, Carr was released and it was thought he might retire.
However Birmingham gave him a new lease of life after initially letting him train with the club in February 2009. Contracts soon followed and Carr has since made over 100 appearances for Brum.
His contract at St Andrew's expires this summer and the right-back is yet to pen a new deal with the Blues although he has stated previously that he is not thinking of retirement and is keen to play on.
Carr recently suffered a knee injury which kept him sidelined for most of the second half of last season but he now looks keen to get his career back on track.
It is difficult to see why this rumour might have any substance. Eddie Howe has been steadily reducing the age of the squad and although many Clarets fans feel the squad still lacks experienced hands, a 35 year old in the twilight of his career would seem an odd choice based on recent strategy.
