James Norwood remains a high priority transfer target for Dundee United.
Courier Sport understands the Tannadice club are still working on a deal to bring the 29-year-old to Scotland on loan from Ipswich Town, even though the gap between the Scottish and English league seasons starting means there are a lot of moving parts.
Norwood scored over 80 goals for Micky Mellon when the pair worked together at Tranmere Rovers.
The signing of Jamie Murphy from Rangers is far less likely, however.
The 30-year-old is on a long list of possible attacking recruits for United but the Tangerines haven’t made contact with Rangers and Murphy is expected to have other options.
And rumours in Dundee that ex-Dens Park hero Greg Stewart is also being lined up for a move from Rangers to United are without substance.
Meanwhile, United have yet to receive any bid – or notification of an intention to bid – for star striker Lawrence Shankland.
