The Hoops may have to see off competition from their Championship rivals for his signature.

Queens Park Rangers have become the latest team to register an interest in Dundee striker Greg Stewart, according to The Scottish Sun.

The 26-year-old has been in scintillating form at the start of this season, scoring six times in just three games in the Scottish League Cup, and it appears that that run has attracted the attention of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Stewart's contract at Dens Park expires at the end of the season, and The Scottish Sun claims that he has no interest in agreeing an extension.

And while the club's owners have previously stated that they would be willing to let him go for nothing next year, The Scottish Sun suggests that a bid of around £400,000 may be enough to tempt them into letting him leave during this window.

However, they are not the only Championship club that have registered an interest in the forward. According to The Scottish Sun, Birmingham City have already seen a bid knocked back and are weighing up a fresh approach for some point this week.

Meanwhile, League One side Oxford United are also in the running, and their recent acquisition of former teammate Kane Hemmings could work in their favour if he decides to try and convince his old strike-partner to join him.
