Dundee United are set to launch an audacious bid to bring back striker Simon Murray to Tannadice.
As manager Csaba Laszlo rebuilds almost an entire squad for next term, the striker has been identified as a man who can grab the goals to get them back to the Premiership.
The 26-year-old scored 25 times in a two-year spell with the Tangerines before moving to Hibs when his contract expired last summer.
Despite scoring 14 times during his first six months at Easter Road, he was loaned out to Dundee for the second half of the campaign.
He hit the net three times for the Dark Blues, helping them get vital points as they survived in the top flight.
Murray has now returned to the Hibees and has a year left on his contract but the feeling is he will be allowed to leave this summer if another club comes in for him.
Dundee could be interested in making his switch to Dens permanent but are understood to be considering other options as well, while Scottish Cup finalists Motherwell are eying a move for him. And United are definitely considering taking him back.
If a deal comes off, the Dundonian will be one of more than an entire team of new faces fixed up in the coming few months.
One stumbling block could be the fact Hibs, despite signing him for free a year ago, are likely to demand a fee.
As United’s rebuilding process goes into overdrive, former Hamilton Accies and Partick Thistle full-back Ziggy Gordon is another name under consideration.
The 25-year-old has spent the last year-and-a-bit in Poland with Jagiellonia Bialystok, but would welcome a move back to Scotland.
