Dundee are ‘keen to land’ Celtic goalkeeper and former loan player Conor Hazard ahead of their cinch Premiership return (DR).

Hazard enjoyed a loan spell at Dundee in the 2019/20 season and has since signed a new deal with Celtic. Dundee were believed to be interested in signing Hazard again before the Parkhead club gave him a small run of games at the end of 2020, including an appearance in last year’s Scottish Cup final.

It has been reported that Dundee are again interested in the Celtic goalkeeper as they seek to provide competition for number one Adam Legzdins. Elsewhere at the Dens Park club, Alan Combe has been appointed goalkeeper coach, succeeding long-serving Dundee legend Bobby Geddes.

A statement reads: “Dundee Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Alan Combe as goalkeeping coach. Alan is vastly experienced having spent time in the same role at St. Johnstone, Alloa, Hearts, Hibernian and most recently Cove Rangers. He has a successful playing career that saw him play north and south of the border.

 

“Alan joined ex Dundee boss Paul Hartley’s coaching staff at Cove in September of last year after leaving Hibs where he spent six years. We would like to thank Cove for their co-operation. He joins James McPake’s coaching staff with immediate effect.”
