Fraser Murray: Set for loan move

Hibs midfielder Fraser Murray is reportedly close to joining Dundee on a loan deal until the end of the season, according to reports.

The Evening Telegraph claims the 20-year-old could spend the second half of the campaign helping James McPake's side cement a place in the promotion play-offs.

Murray, a regular in the Capital club's development side, has made 25 appearances for the Easter Road side, but Hibs are understood to be keen for the player to get more gametime before the summer.

The Academy graduate was an unused sub as Hibs held Motherwel to a goalless draw at Fir Park on Saturday and has played just 232 minutes of senior football this term.

The Dens Park side are said to be keen on doing a deal in time for next weekend's trip to Greenock to face Morton.
