GRAHAM DORRANS is a reported target for MK Dons and Dundee could face a fight to hold onto the former Scotland international.

Russell Martin, a former team-mate of the midfielder at Rangers, is now boss at the English League outfit and is showing an interest in the player, according to the Courier.

Dens boss James McPake has already stated he expected his summer recruit, who scored the side’s equaliser in the derby at Tannadice a week ago, to still be at the club when this month’s window closes.

The Tayside gaffer said: “Graham is happy and is starting to really enjoy it. You can see that.

“He’s a winner and wants to get back to a level he should be playing at. I’m confident he’ll be doing that here.”

As far as incomings are concerned, a loan deal for St Johnstone midfielder Ross Callachan has been linked, but McPake added: “We need to take stock of what we have and where we need to improve for the second part of the season and beyond.

“We took our time in the summer. We waited and I think it will be the same in this window.

“It’s a bit easier because there aren’t as many players needed. There aren’t big gaps to fill after losing 12 players.

“We’ll take our time and try to get it right again.”
