Dundee are set to make TWO huge transfer window gambles, with local hero Craig Wighton on the verge of a move to Hearts and veteran striker Kenny Miller closing in on a Dens Park deal.
Wighton has had a six-year association with the club he supported as a boy and where he went into folklore by scoring the goal that officially relegated rivals Dundee United.
It is understood Hearts and Dundee have agreed a six figure deal which could be confirmed on Wednesday.
The Scotland under-21 international recovered from a serious knee injury at the back end of last season and hasn’t been a regular under manager Neil McCann this term.
He remains a fans’ favourite, though, of whom big things are still hoped for.
Meanwhile, a man at the other end of his career, 38-year-old Kenny Miller, is heading to Dundee.
St Mirren were the frontrunners to snap up the former Scotland and Rangers man after he parted company with Livingston following a short time as player/manager.
But McCann didn’t rule out the possibility of trying to lure him to Dens at the end of last week and it appears his sales pitch has proved persuasive.
Dundee are in need of a cutting edge and Miller has been a consistent performer at Premiership level.
McCann will be hoping that time hasn’t caught up with the veteran.
