Dundee are eyeing up a move for former Hamilton playmaker Ali Crawford – though they face stiff competition for his signature.
The 26-year-old left Accies at the end of last season after 11 years at the club.
Dens gaffer Neil McCann is keen to add more to his attack and Crawford would fit the bill as a creative force for his front line.
English side Blackpool, however, are also keen on the player.
He stated when leaving New Douglas Park he wanted to head down south to further his career, so a move to the English League One would be attractive.
Gary Bowyer’s Seasiders finished in 12th spot last season.
Also in the frame are Hibs after manager Neil Lennon admitted he was keen on Crawford, while Motherwell have also made advances.
The attacking midfielder certainly has options to choose from for his next destination but has indicated he will take his time over the decision.
Meanwhile, Dundee’s pursuit of Peterborough defender Jack Baldwin has recieved a boost.
The Posh have snapped up Ross County defender Jason Naismith.
The Staggies full-back impressed last season despite the Highland side finishing bottom of the Premiership pile and suffering relegation as a result.
And Steve Evans has swooped for another Scotsman after grabbing Dee midfielder Mark O’Hara at the end of last month on a free transfer.
Signing Naismith has seen Dundee target Baldwin transfer listed at London Road with his services no longer required.
The asking price of £200,000, however, is still in place which could put an end to the Dark Blues’ interest.
