Saints linked with Harkins swoop

30 May 2013 08:47
Dundee midfielder Gary Harkins could be Danny Lennon's first signing of the summer as the Saints' boss looks to boost his squad for the new season.

For the last few weeks all we have heard is stories about leaving - and there's still a few more of those to come. However, we have at last been linked with a player and it's one that could do a decent job for us.

Harkins is currently in his second spell at Dens Park, having helped them avoid relegation to the second division in the 2010/12 season despite them being docked 25 points. He then moved to Kilmarnock and had a good first season there before returning to Dundee in January, signing a deal until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old has had a few fall outs during his career, one of which led to his exit from Rugby Park. However, on his day he is a great player and could be the ideal replacement for Paul McGowan - if he can produce the goods consistently and we can sort the attitude and fitness problems fans of his former clubs claim he has.
