Dundee manager James McPake says the Dens Park club need a new goalkeeper, amid links to Celtic stopper Conor Hazard, Danny Rogers and more.

The newly-promoted cinch Premiership team have Adam Legzdins as their number one but want another to provide competition. Hazard is one name linked, having spent time on loan at Dundee from Celtic in the 2019/20 season. McPake tried to sign him last season but Celtic handed the Northern Irish international a small run in the team.

Shaun MacDonald, Ian Lawlor and Danny Rogers either have been or are on trial at Dens Park ahead of their Premier Sports Cup group stage opener against Brora Rangers. McPake also has Celtic academy product Cillian Sheridan on trial and says the club are working hard on their recruitment efforts.

 

He said: “We need another goalkeeper and a couple in different areas of the pitch. It is an area we are working on but there are a couple of options.”
