UK pay-tv broadcaster BT Sport are willing to offer the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) their biggest-ever broadcasting deal in exchange for exclusive rights to Scottish football.
BT and Sky Sports currently pay around £21million a year to share 60 live SPFL games, while BT also have exclusive rights to the Betfred League Cup.
However, the telecoms giant are said to be readying an offer to the SPFL that would trump Setanta's record £31m per year deal in 2008.
BT Sport recently repurchased rights to broadcast the Champions League and Europa League for a further three years, paying £1.2bn to secure the deal.
