Swansea City are eyeing up a move for Dundee’s star midfielder Glen Kamara, the Tele can reveal.
The English Championship side were linked with a move for the Finnish international last summer, among a host of others.
And with the 23-year-old available to sign on a pre-contract in January as he moves into the final six months of his contract, the Welsh club have stepped up their interest.
Manager Graham Potter had a scout in attendance at Dens Park for Dundee’s impressive 4-0 victory over Hamilton on Wednesday.
And the Swans will be keeping a keen eye on how Kamara fares against Steven Gerrard’s Rangers on Sunday.
They are unlikely to be the only ones, however, with the Gers themselves and Old Firm rivals Celtic credited with interest in the summer while Hearts and Hibs are also keen on the former Arsenal man.
Meanwhile, Dark Blues boss Jim McIntyre says the loss of centre-back Darren O’Dea is a blow as he prepares his side to take on Rangers on Sunday.
The experienced defender has played a big part in Dundee’s recent revival under their new manager but limped off against Accies on Wednesday.
And that calf injury is almost certain to keep him out of the weekend clash.
Jim said: “Picking up the injury with Darren is a blow because him and Gensy (Kusunga) have done well together but there are other good players here who need to step in and show what they can do.”
n Long-serving directer Steve Martin has retired from his position on the board.
In a statement, Martin said a need to spend more time with his family and pursue other business interests was behind the decision.
