Dundee are interested in bringing Shaun Byrne to Dens Park – but they aren’t the only club tracking the in-form Livingston midfielder.

Courier Sport can reveal that the Dark Blues may have competition from Hibs and English League One sides, should the West Lothian club agree to sell.

Byrne has been a revelation in the Premiership for Livi in central midfield and has a year-and-a-half left on his deal.

Dundee boss Jim McIntyre knows all about the 25-year-old’s capabilities as he promoted Byrne to his first team squad when he was Dunfermline manager.

Glen Kamara’s pre-contract agreement with Rangers has been confirmed and it would be no surprise if the two clubs settled on a deal for the Finland international to make the move to Ibrox this month rather than wait until the summer.

McIntyre has spoken about getting the “right types” into his side for Dundee’s relegation battle, and Byrne undoubtedly falls into that category.

Another of his former players, centre-back Andrew Davies, has been linked with a move from Hartlepool to Dens, according to sources in the north east of England.

One ex-Ross County man who has been confirmed as a Dundee signing is Craig Curran.

The striker has made the switch from Dundee United on a contract through to 2021.

Curran struggled for regular starts at Tannadice and only scored three goals in his short time with the Tangerines.

But he was a key part of the County side that rose off the bottom of the Premiership a few years ago, and McIntyre will be hoping he has a similar impact at Dens Park after the January break.

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Craig has signed tonight. He is a player I know very well from our time together previously.”

“Craig is the right type, he has the right mentality and he is exactly what we need moving forward.”
