The Daily Record reported that St Johnstone had made an offer for the ex-Dee striker, but it’s his former club who have won the race for his signature.
He has left Notts County to pen a three-year deal at Dens Park.
Hemmings is the final attacking piece Dundee need
The Daily Record report also claims that Dundee have been stretched to their financial limits to pull this deal off. It shows how badly James McPake wanted the striker to return home.
Hemmings netted 25 goals for the Dark Blues during the 2015/16 season. Oxford United snapped him up after this in 2016 and he has stayed down south ever since.
It’s a big show of ambition by the Tayside club. It shows they are taking their bid for promotion seriously.
McPake needs another clinical forward. Danny Johnson has started well but he either needs someone to play behind him in the number ten role or alongside him.
Not only has he proven he can score goals for the Dee, but Hemming’s is a bit more physical than Johnson as well. Having a poacher and an out and out number nine up top will be a good combination for McPake.
Hemmings was brilliant last time round for Dundee. This can only be considered a fantastic signing.
