Dundee have taken striker Cillian Sheridan on trial as the Celtic academy graduate aims to earn a return to the cinch Premiership.

The capped Republic of Ireland forward has played abroad since 2013 and was with Polish side Wisla Plock last season. Sheridan started his career with Celtic and made a handful of appearances alongside stints with Motherwell, Kilmarnock and St Johnstone.

Rumours had surfaced that Sheridan was a signing target for James McPake’s recently-promoted Premiership side.

The Dens Park club have since posted an image showing that the 32-year-old striker is with the team at present. McPake also has Danny Mullen, Jason Cummings and Alex Jakubiak as striking options.

Dundee begin their Premier Sports Cup campaign against Brora Rangers next week. They will play pre-season friendlies at home to Leyton Orient and West Ham prior to the match.
