The 24-year-old is attracting plenty of interest this summer with Wigan Athletic also said to be keen on a move for St Johnstone star.
For Kerr it’s been quite a season after the club captain led the Scottish side to a domestic cup double after winning both the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup last term.

One of Karl Robinson’s players is attracting plenty of attention with Atkinson said to be firmly on the radar of Bristol City.
Reports from Bristol Live have suggested that the Robins have had an offer in excess of £1,4million rejected for the central defender, with Oxford reportedly valuing the player at closer to £1.6million.
While it remains to be seen what the future holds for Atkinson this summer, it certainly seems that Robinson is looking at alternative arrangements as he prepares his side for the new season with a push for promotion the sole objective.
