The New York Yankees are considering a move for free-agent shortstop Stephen Drew after ditching their plans to fall under the $189m luxury tax threshold, reports CBS Sports.

After the Yankees smashed through the tax barrier to land Masahiro Tanaka, there were rumours that they would continue the lavish winter spending spree, which currently stands at $470 million.

Although the roster seems to be nearly full there are suggestions from sources that they are at least considering adding Drew to their lineup - especially as he is a Boston Red Sox player.

The Red Sox have previously announced their intention to do a multi-year deal with Drew, but the player remains confident that he can find a better deal elsewhere.

The New York Mets are also thought to be in for Drew and are believed to have sufficient funds left despite signing Curtis Granderson, Bartolo Colon and Chris Young already this winter.

Meanwhile the Yankees continue to consider a move for the player, who hit  hit .253 with 13 homers, 67 RBI and a .777 OPS last year, as second and third bases remain uncertain.
