Dundee boss Jim McIntyre has confirmed his interest in bringing free agent Andrew Davies to the club.
His former skipper at Ross County was released by mutual consent from his contract at Hartlepool at the start of the week and has been heavily linked with a move to Dens Park.
And the Dark Blues gaffer confirmed he’s keen to get Davies in, providing he can prove his fitness after playing just 13 matches this season despite being captain at the National League side.
Jim said: “Dav is a player I know really well and has the right mentality and character.
“He has, obviously, left Hartlepool and somebody we are interested in but I would like to take a look at his fitness.”
Meanwhile, Jim was delighted to bring in another former Staggie in striker Craig Curran from rivals Dundee United.
“Obviously, Craig is a player I know very well having signed him for Ross County where he did a brilliant job for me,” Jim said.
“He’s an infectious player to have around the dressing-room and plays the centre-forward position very well.
“He ticks a lot of boxes for me in terms of what I am looking for.
“He has a very strong mentality which is what we are going to need going into the second half of the season.”
The Dens gaffer revealed he’d only had one enquiry for the group of players he told can leave the club so far.
However, one that is definitely leaving after signing a pre-contract deal with Rangers is Glen Kamara.
As it stands, he’ll join the Gers in the summer but Jim hasn’t ruled out a move this month.
He added: “Glen has signed a pre-contract with Rangers and that’s where it lies at the moment – he will go there in the summer.
“But when pre-contracts are signed you never know where it might lead to.
“It is early in the window and he has got the move to Rangers agreed for the summer but that might change, we just don’t know.”
