Rangers eye Dorrans

Rangers are interested in signing Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans this summer. The 29-year-old looks set to exit Carrow Road after two years with the club and could return to Scotland in order to join the side he supported as a boy. Ibrox boss Pedro Caixinha sent his new No.3 assistant Jonathan Johansson to watch the player in Monday’s 3-1 win over Preston, a match in which Dorrans scored. (Scottish Sun)

Hibs to sign Swanson

Hibs are set to complete the signing of St Johnstone midfielder Danny Swanson on a pre-contract. The boyhood Hibs fan has been a target of Neil Lennon’s side for a number of months and looks to have finally agreed to the move after Hibs gained promotion back to the top flight. Swanson has been in excellent form for Saints this season, scoring 13 goals from midfield. (Scottish Sun)

Hibs are also looking to recruit Polish striker Piotr Parzyszek. The ex-Charlton hitman has struck 25 goals for De Graafschap in the Dutch second tier. (Daily Record)
