Jameson on trial

Celtic have moved to strengthen their defensive corps after taking Chelsea defender Kyle Jameson on a two-week trial. The Hoops are short at the back after an injury to Dedryck Boyata ruled the Belgian out for three months. 18-year-old Jameson would be available on a season-long loan should Brendan Rodgers wish to sign him.

Partick Thistle want Storey

Partick Thistle are interested in signing Aberdeen outcast Miles Storey should the player be allowed to leave Pittodrie. Several other Premiership clubs are thought to be interested in the 23-year-old who starred for Inverness CT during the 2015-16 season but has thus far failed to make an impact in the north east.

Surge in Club 1872 membership

Club 1872 bought half of the Sports Direct chief’s stake at the cost of around £1million, making the group the second largest shareholders. (The Herald)

Dundee to avoid court battle

Dundee look set to avoid a courtroom battle with Paul Hartley as the two sides draw close to agreeing a severance fee for the former manager.

Aberdeen eye GMS

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is hoping to complete a move for Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven.

Nicholson moves

Sam Nicholson’s transfer to Minnesota United has been confirmed. The 22-year-old winger agreed to join the MLS club under freedom of contract after declining the chance to extend his ten-year stay with boyhood club Hearts. Nicholson has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Minnesota, with the option of an additional 18 months. (Evening News)
