Lennon was yesterday expected to hold talks with former Motherwell full-back Tom Hateley as he continues to revamp the squad he inherited from predecessor Alan Stubbs in the summer.

Hateley is a free agent after this summer turning down a new deal at Polish side Slask Wroclaw, where he moved in January 2014 following a spell with 
Tranmere Rovers.

Lennon is known to be keen on cover for skipper David Gray at right-back, whilst the 26-year-old would also offer options in midfield.

Graham, who left Ross County to pen a two-year deal on Saturday morning before making his debut hours later in the 2-0 
victory over St Mirren, has been tipped for success by Lennon.

He said: “Very much like Grant [Holt], Brian will bring a physical presence. I think he is very good at attacking crosses, gets across people, and technically he’s OK.

“His work-rate is excellent and his goal-scoring record is very good. And he wanted to come here, so he’s actually made the step down, and that speaks 
volumes for his attitude.”
