Dunfermline are closing in on the signing of Stranraer midfielder Andy Stirling, Courier Sport can reveal.
Pars boss Jim Jefferies was impressed with the 24-year-old when he came up against his team in League One last season and has made his move to bring him to East End Park.
Stirling can play either in wide or central midfield and has regularly chipped in with goals for the Stair Park side.
He started off his career with St Mirren, before moving on to Stenhousemuir and East Stirlingshire. Stirling has also played college football in the USA.
After signing Michael Moffat from Ayr United and Gregor Buchanan from Airdrie, Jefferies has two spots left to fill in his squad.
As well as a midfielder, he is also looking for another frontman, and Annan Athletic’s Kenny MacKay is believed to be his first choice for that position, with Morton’s Archie Campbell also on his radar.
He said earlier this week: “I told the board that we are looking for a central defender, two strikers and a wide player. I have got one striker and the central defender and we are close to getting another player. That’s all we want.
“If we get the other boys that we have targeted we will have strengthened well. We are very comfortably off in midfield and I am happy with the rest of the boys.”
