As per The Scottish Sun, Dundee United want to sign Glasgow Rangers’ Jamie Murphy this summer.
It is being reported that the newly promoted Premiership side want to sign Murphy, who spent time last season out on loan at English League One club Burton Albion.
As the 30-year-old has just 12 months left on his current deal, it is believed the Gers would let him go for a cut-price fee as the Tangerines desperately look to add to their attacking options.
There is a crushing sense of what might have been for Murphy at Ibrox. He signed for a fee of £1.08m in 2018 following a six-month loan spell, which is still a pretty substantial fee for any side north of the border, even the likes of the Gers.
However, the problems started almost as soon as he arrived permanently at the club, with him damaging his cruciate ligament less than two months after the transfer from Brighton – that injury would see him miss 302 days and 52 matches, effectively killing his career at the club before it even started.
He has still managed six goals and 13 assists in 29 matches for the 54-time Scottish champions, which is far from an embarrassing return, but he has been unable to work his way into Steven Gerrard’s plans on a regular basis. A 10-game loan spell at Burton last term, during which he scored seven goals, shows he still has talent, but his future does not look like it is at Ibrox.

Currently valued at £720,000 by Transfermarkt, Ross Wilson must make sure he secures a good fee for the Scotland international if he does move on. Hopefully, he can put those injury problems behind him.
