Bournemouth and Derby County have joined Swansea City in the race to sign Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara, HITC Sport understands.

Kamara has been earning rave reviews in Scotland and he has arguably been one of the best signings in the Scottish Premiership this season.

The Finland international, who joined Dundee from Arsenal last summer, has started all but one of Dundee's 33 games in the Scottish Premiership, only missing out on his ever-present record due to a suspension.

Old Firm duo Celtic and Rangers have shown an interest in Kamara, having been impressed by his performances this season when coming up against him.

Swansea are also weighing up a move for the midfield enforcer after sending scouts to watch him in action on several occasions this term as they look to bolster their squad for next season.

Bournemouth and Derby have now been alerted to Kamara's talents and are ready to join the chase for 22-year-old this summer.

Kamara has just over a year to run on his contract at Dens Park and Dundee boss Neil McCann has admitted he faces a huge test to keep hold of the player.

Dundee have yet to receive any formal bids for Kamara, but the club's hierarchy are bracing themselves for offers for their prize asset when the transfer window opens this summer.
