Rangers have refused to let Ross McCrorie leave on loan to Dundee this January, after the club enquired about his availability as part of the potential deal to let Glen Kamara move to Ibrox.
The Scottish Sun report that the Dark Blues wanted the midfielder to make a temporary switch to Tayside as the two clubs continue discussions on Kamara.
The Finnish international has signed a pre-contract with Rangers and Jim McIntyre is keen to thrash out a deal that will benefit Dundee before they lose him for nothing.
The paper say that Dundee also hoped Ryan Hardie might move on loan in the second half of the season, but he prefers a return to Livingston.
McCrorie has made 19 appearances for Steven Gerrard’s side this season but only ten of those have been starts and he arguably needs more regular football to truly fulfil his potential.
A loan isn’t the worst idea in the world, especially since the signing of Steven Davis likely pushes him further down the midfield pecking order.
With Dundee rooted at the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table, they may not be the best destination, but will another Scottish Premiership side make a move for the talented 20-year-old?
