Celtic have taken Chelsea defender Kyle Jameson on a two-week trial, Rangers supporters group Club 1872 has enjoyed a surge in membership, and Partick Thistle are considering a move for Aberdeen attacker Miles Storey.
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
Rangers supporters group Club 1872 has enjoyed a surge in membership thanks to the deal to buy out Mike Ashley. 700 new members have signed up in the aftermath of the new retail agreement, which saw Ashley agree to sell his shares in the club. 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)
Lafferty out to stop invincibles
Kyle Lafferty is looking to end Celtic’s unbeaten run on his league debut for new club Hearts. The former Rangers attacker signed a two-year deal at Tynecastle earlier this summer and can’t wait for the season to get underway. Ian Cathro’s side begin the league campaign with four successive away trips, including a daunting opening match at the home of the champions. (Daily Record)
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. Hartley was sacked by the Dens Park club in April and started legal proceedings against them last month in an attempt to get his settlement paid up front rather than in instalments.

Aberdeen eye GMS
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is hoping to complete a move for Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven. The Dons and the Glasgow club have already done business this summer, with Pittodrie favourite Jonny Hayes leaving for Parkhead on a three-year contract, while Ryan Christie has moved in the opposite direction for a second spell on loan in the north-east.

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)
