Dundee are reportedly hoping to complete a deal to sign Paul McMullan from city rivals Dundee United in the current transfer window.

Reports suggest that the Dens Park club has opened talks with the player about a potential move to Dundee. McMullan is out of contract at the end of the season.

The report goes on to detail that although the current deal on offer is a pre-contract one, if possible Dundee would like to get the deal done in the current January window.

Key man in promotion campaign

Signing McMullan would certainly be a good move for Dundee. The 24-year-old was a key man in Dundee United’s Championship winning campaign last season.

He scored three goals and has 10 assists, a good return for a right-sided midfielder. However, this season McMullan has not been able to hold down a regular first-team place at the Tannadice club.

So far, he has started only six times for United this season. With that in mind, perhaps a move would suit the player.

Eager to get move completed

Dundee boss James McPake will be more than eager to get any move completed in January. McMullan could be a key man in Dundee’s push for promotion. He has already shown that he knows how to perform in the Championship last season with Dundee United.

If he can replicate that form, then McMullan could be a very useful signing for the Dens Park club. Dundee is in a good frame of mind after the recent win over Hearts. The signing of a player like McMullen could only add to that.
