Released Rangers man Graham Dorrans is set for a switch to the EFL, with a trio of clubs eyeing a move for his services.
A move to Fleetwood would see him join former Rangers man Joey Barton, the current boss of the Cod Army. They’re hoping to trouble the top six this season, as are Portsmouth who have had a tough start.
A move to Bolton would guarantee regular football, despite their signing spree yesterday. They signed nine players but need to capture some free agents to bulk out their squad.
Dorrans, capped 12 times by Scotland since 2009, has seven seasons of Premier League football behind him in England, mainly during a spell at West Brom. He also helped Norwich City to promotion, earning a move to Ibrox.
His tenure with his boyhood club has not been a roaring success and first-team chances were few and far between for the midfielder.
Bolton would be the wisest move here, but he might want to link up with former Gers teammate Jordan Rossiter, currently on loan with Fleetwood.
Bolton would be a project; they’re going to struggle to stay up, but they’re also a big club with good prospects once they’ve worked through the points deduction.
Portsmouth are a big club too, but could they afford him the game time he needs at the tail end of his career?
