Dundee could be planning an audacious swoop to bring former Rangers midfielder Graham Dorrans to Dens Park according to The Daily Record.
Dorrans left Rangers at the start of September despite having a year left on his contract following his move to the Glasgow club from Norwich for £750,000 in 2017.
His time at Ibrox has been ravaged by injury with the midfielder only making three-appearances all of last season and a total of 19 over the whole course of his career.
Despite this, Dorrans is looking to get his career back on track and isn’t short of admirers. Kilmarnock remain keen on him as do English side Bolton along with some foreign options.
If Dundee do have solid interest in the midfielder, the ex-Scottish international won’t come cheap or at least, he will have to take a considerable drop in wages to drop down a division.
In Dundee’s favour is his friendship with manager James McPake who he was a teammate with during their Livingston days. While there will remain question marks over his fitness, there is no denying that Dundee are in dire need of someone of his quality in our team right now.
For the player himself, this could be a smart move. A drop down into a division in which he would be one of the best players if he stayed clear of injuries could potentially see him kick-start his career and either help the club to a quick return to the Premiership or at least, put himself back into the shop window.
