Dundee are said to be interested in signing Celtic academy product Cillian Sheridan after an eight-year absence from the SPFL (Courier).

The Republic of Ireland striker has been playing abroad since 2013, mainly featuring in Cyprus and Poland, with a stint in Australia and Israel also part of his journey. Sheridan started his career at Celtic and has also played for Motherwell, St Johnstone and Kilmarnock.

Now 32, Sheridan was highly-thought of as he broke through at Celtic and has forged a good career for himself abroad. He featured last season at Polish side Wisla Plock, coming off the back of a spell of eight goals in 25 matches for Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona in Israel.

Dens Park manager James McPake could offer him a return to Scotland ahead of Dundee’s return to the cinch Premiership. There would be strong competition for a starting spot, however, with McPake able to call upon Jason Cummings, Alex Jakubiak and Danny Mullen as his striker options.
