Dundee boss Paul Hartley is starting to resemble the Scottish version of Harry Redknapp.
There are a few key differences obviously, for one he still very much has a job.
Paul hasn’t dropped the west coast twang for a cockney accent. Neither has he got the Del Boy wheeler-dealer impression off to a ‘T’ but he’s certainly becoming a rival with regards transfers.
Every window that comes around, the Dark Blues gaffer is right in the mix.
‘Arry left Loftus Road under a cloud yesterday. Rumours are circulating that he’s more dismayed with a lack of activity in the market than his gammy knee.
Paul can’t quite say the same he’s been backed to the hilt.
By my calculations that’s some 21 bodies added at Dens since June 2014. Five more came in during the winter window.
Here we take a look at Paul’s most recent business and assess what impact each will have on the rest of the Dark Blues’ campaign.
A signing who has split the fans. Some questioning what value he can add to the Dee squad, especially after the recent release of a fellow-striker Peter MacDonald and with Craig Wighton still on the books.
But what Heffernan has proven throughout his career is he can find the back of the net.
With David Clarkson’s form dip, Dundee needed a boost up top. The former Kilmarnock, Notts County, Sheffield Wednesday and Doncaster Rovers man might just be the answer, for the short term.
We’ve already seen what Hibs loanee Harris can bring to the side.
His pace is blistering and he has an end product, something the club were looking for when they replaced Martin Boyle, who went the other way.
If he can add consistency to his game, he’ll be a force to be reckoned with.
Pretty much the only man in Dundee’s side who can take them from one end to the other in the blink of an eye.
If he stays confident, he could inspire a top-six charge.
Quite possibly the best bit of business of the month, well at Dens anyway.
McGinn adds height and quality to Dundee’s midfield engine room.
Originally signed on loan, his deal was turned into a permanent one following his negotiation of a release from Sheffield United.
I can see him forming a formidable partnership with Kevin Thomson, when fit.
The only other thing it does is leave the future of Jim McAlister, out of contract in the summer, up in the air.
He might find it difficult to get in when both of Paul’s men are fit and firing.
One for the future. Had his scholarship at Wolverhampton Wanderers cancelled which allowed him to make the trip up north.
Signed on an 18-month contract, the manager admits he is one to watch, very much the same type of signing as Dylan Carriero earlier this season.
Like Carriero, he will be assessed by the club’s reserve coach staff. Likely to spend the next six months at Dens before a potential loan move to lower leagues is lined up for next season.
Unlikely to make an immediate impact.
Has so far done what has been asked of him, when called upon.
Has filled in at centre-half in the absence of Iain Davidson and James McPake through injury, as well as covering for the out-of-form Thomas Konrad.
The one blemish on his copybook being the penalty that got Aberdeen’s comeback rolling at Pittodrie a few weeks back.
Apart from that, he looks composed and uses the ball well. Lacks a little height but you could say that about virtually every defender at the club.
