Raith are keen to take surplus-to-requirements Ryan Conroy off Dundee’s hands.
The Kirkcaldy outfit have made contact with the Dark Blues with the hope of landing the wide man on a season-long loan-deal.
The move could appeal to both parties given that manager Paul Hartley does not see Conroy as part of his Premiership plans and also given that the 27-year-old is reluctant to leave.
Ex-Celtic and Scotland youth international Conroy still has one year left on his present deal at Dens.
However, last week, along with Kyle Benedictus and Nicky Riley, he was told to look for football elsewhere. That has alerted a number of clubs to the possibility of signing the trio.
While Raith head the queue for Conroy, recently-relegated Morton are keen to land centre-half Benedictus and Alloa, managed by former boss Barry Smith, are tracking all three.
Earlier in the summer, Steven Doris and Jamie Reid were similarly told they were free to leave. But both remain on the books.
It’s believed Peterhead want Doris and Reid could end up at Stenhousemuir, where he had a successful loan spell the season before last.
While keen to get bodies out the door, the gaffer remains very active in the market in terms of incomings.
On Saturday, the club secured their sixth summer signing, bringing Simon Ferry from Portsmouth on a two-year deal.
Paul said: “I’m happy to get Simon from Portsmouth. He’s young, dynamic and has proved himself in England at a very decent level.
“He played last year as a sitting midfielder but I see his strengths in attacking and going forward with the ball.
“I think the fans will really take to him. He’s a Dundee lad, so he knows what this club means to the city.”
