The Sunday Mail claims both sides are keen to get a deal done for the centre-back and have made contact with the Tynecastle side while Partick Thistle were also interested but have turned their attentions to other targets.

The 34-year-old defender has been informed he has no future at the Capital club and is training with the Jambos' reserves, but is understood to be open to a move this month.

Berra was offered to St Johnstone as a makeweight in a deal for winger Matty Kennedy, who eventually joined Aberdeen, but Dark Blues boss James McPake is looking to bolster his squad as Dundee push for a play-off place in Scotland's second tier.
