The transfer window has somewhat slowed down in Scottish football. With Premiership clubs having started at the beginning of August, managers looked to get their business done early. As such it is only tweaks here and there which are required rather than wholesale changes.

The more interesting business could be done with players exiting as English clubs are still likely to be very busy in the market between now and the close of the window next month.

  • Rangers target could cost £8m
  • Celtic confident of signing defender

Hearts close in on defender

Hearts flop set for move

Donis Avdijaj is set to drop down to the German third tier, report the Daily Record.

The attacker left Hearts after signing for the club in January. He arrived with a big reputation but didn’t deliver.

Avdijaj will join Turkgucu Munich despite offers from Saudi Arabia.

Celtic confident of defender deal

Celtic are ‘confident’ of landing Alfie Doughty from Charlton Athletic.

According to a report they could succeed with a third bid of £800,000 for the versatile 20-year-old who can feature at left-back.

Neil Lennon confirmed he hoped to add another left-back after the departure of Boli Bolingoli.

Rangers target could cost £8m

Rangers could have to stump up around £8m for midfield target Daniel Johnson.

Ex-Aberdeen striker Noel Whelan is a huge fan of the player who would add further excitement to the Rangers midfield.

He told Football Insider: “A player that has got pace, very intelligent on the ball, can assist and has an eye for goal. He would breeze the Scottish Premiership because of his attributes and talent.

“Another good young player and somebody that would add quality to an already quality squad at Rangers. I do not think he would cost too much money, around the £7-8million mark but for that sort of player it is a good price."
